Snowy FantasyPosted: December 14, 2013
I know my Winter Wonderland week on the Penny Black blog is officially over, but I do have a snowscape or two still to share.
This panel was done on water colour paper with a mix of Distress stains and Memento inks. I positioned a hill mask first before I stamped the tree in Versamark then inked only the trunk and branches in dark brown and stamped it again a little lower. I filled the rest of the sky with snow by repeatedly inking and stamping only a corner of the Fantasy stamp in versamark. I then embossed the tree and snow in clear powder. To create the sky I wet the top of the panel with water and started blending dusty concord and broken china distress stains. I stamped the flourish several times in Memento sweet plum while the paper was still damp. I then removed the mask and painted shadows with diluted distress stains to create the snow banks in the foreground.
Apparently another snow storm is heading our way tomorrow so it will continue to look like a winter wonderland around here!
