Tannenbaum – the candy cane edition


Another snow scene for you today but somewhat simpler than the storm from earlier in the week. I started once again, with a panel that had masking fluid flicked on it.  After positioning a hill shaped mask I brayered Memento summer sky ink over the top of the card. Before moving the mask I stamped the Tannenbaum stamp several times with Cottage Ivy ink. I removed the mask and repositioned it to sponge a hollow in the snow for the feature tree also stamped in Cottage Ivy.  I repositioned the mask one more time and sponged a small section to create one more little hollow then add the sentiment in Versafine Satin red and the balls with a Memento Lady Bug marker. I gently rubbed off the masking fluid to reveal the falling snow.

The pretty baker’s twine from The Twinery matched perfectly and reminds me of candy canes.

    Wonderful card! Love the tree stamp and coloring. The twine does remind one of peppermint and spearmint candy canes. 🙂
