Winter Woodland Wonder

Winter Thanks Heather Telford

Woodland Wonder is another gorgeous stamp from the new Penny Black release. It is lovely to use in a winter scene but, like ‘Etched Branches‘ in my last post, I will be using all year I’m sure.

I used sponging and embossing for this scene, stamping the image first in versamark then again in versafine onyx black ink before embossing in clear powder. I used a paintbrush to paint some masking fluid on a few branches and splattered a few spots here and there before moving on to the sponging.  I started with the sky, sponging it in Memento Summer Sky ink then masked over both the sky and the foreground to sponge Memento Nautical blue mountains. I sponged over the edge of a curved mask a couple of times in the foreground to create the appearance of snow banks.  To finish I removed the masking fluid and matted in both black and white cardstock. The little silver snowflake is a charm my friend Lorraine gave me last year when I was ‘shopping her stash’ in Washington. It is held in place by some silver cord.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian readers; we are enjoying some lovely sunny skies and beautiful autumn colours in Ottawa this weekend. Later today we will be enjoying some roast turkey. I have so much to be thankful for, not the least of which are my generous and faithful blog readers.

    A belated Happy Thanksgiving to you too, Heather — I hear you had some warm temperatures again today. Where were those this summer?
    This mountain landscape is gorgeous… your talent at creating a scene is extraordinary.

    I was looking for some older Penny Black nature stamps and just discovered your blog. My goodness, you are a fabulous artist! I learned some new things, just watching you this morning. Wanted to add, I also have arthritis in all my fingers, yet I have learned how to hold tools differently by shear persistence and slowing down! I know you will do fine also with adjustments! The art is in your heart and head, so it will still prevail! God Bless You!
