Winter Thank you

I’m a guest over at the Foiled Fox blog today; you know that is one of my favourite places to share my cards. With less than a week until Christmas I have switched to making thank you cards. This one combines several Penny Black stamps, one from this year and others from Christmasses past. All the snow falling is the effect created when painting over splattered masking fluid. After the painting has dried I rub off the masking to reveal little white dots – snow! The black stamping is done with pigment inks to preserve the sharp defined edges of the trees and deer. The soft tree shapes in the background are stamped in distress inks to enable blending and bleeding into the watercolour sky.

The whole process is described in detail on the Foiled Fox blog and supplies are listed below.


Stamps: snowy village, nature’s friends, woodland beauty, happy snippets

Inks: versafine onyx black, evergreen bough distress ink

Distress Stains: salty ocean, faded jeans, evergreen bough

Hot pressed watercolor paper

Also: masking fluid, stamping platform

    Oh Heather, I so envy your ability to create a beautiful winter scene, I know envy is not a good thing but I can’t help it as you are so adept at this style and the beautiful blue of the sky with the bits of snow falling and the gorgeous silhouette foreground with the trees and deer make the perfect combination. x
