CAS(E) this sketch #95

_DSC5145 Mini snowscape Heather Telford

I have been creating snowy scenes with dye inks on a large watercolour block this week. When I saw sketch#95 at CAS(E) this sketch and still had a corner left on the block already flecked with masking fluid I thought I could put the two together. Sometimes when I look at a sketch I can’t see past the shapes and images in the sketch, arrows for instance in the current sketch.

With this sketch I was able to see past the arrows and visualize a snowscape with a stand of trees on the right hand side. I did deviate from the sketch and add a few more trees on the left. Whether I play along or not I am always impressed by the imagination and creativity of the design team members in their interpretations of each week’s sketch.

To create the scene I punched a little circle mask for the moon and painted the sky in two blue distress stains.  I added two dips with the same stains then stamped trees in memento ink. When all was dry I rubbed off the masking fluid. I hope you are not getting sick of these trees from the Prancers set, ‘cos I just can’t leave them alone!


Stamps: City Lights, Prancers (PB), 
Inks: Tumbled Glass, Chipped Sapphire (Ranger) Memento Northern Pine  (Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko)
Cardstock: Fabriano 100% & 25% cotton hot pressed watercolour paper
Also: Winsor & Newton masking fluid

    Wonderful card, Heather! I like the trees because they look so real and stamped in the northern pine makes them the perfect color. Your sky is, as always, fabulous and made me think about the snow that is predicted to fall here in the midwest (IL, USA) today. Yes, this yr cold temps and snow (winter) seems to be arriving earlier than usual. : )
