Snowy forestPosted: November 9, 2012
Give me a tree stamp and I will try and make a snowscape with it. I will also try autumn, spring and summer scenes but there is something about a magical snow covered scene that really works beautifully with tree stamps.
I used a technique which I have described previously in a tutorial here: Winter Berry Branch tutorial
I stamp an image twice, once in versamark then again slightly lower in black ink before embossing in clear powder. After sponging over the double stamped image any branches or trees appear to have snow sitting on them.
After a week of cold, cold mornings our weather is supposed to be warming up over the weekend. Which is good because it’s really not time for snow and as usual we don’t have all our leaves collected yet.
Stamps: Christmas Park, Silent Night(PB)
Inks: Memento Summer Sky, Danube Blue, Paris Dusk, Versafine Onyx Black, Versamark(Tsukineko)
