Crisp & cold

This seems an appropriate card to post right now while the weather is oh. so. cold. For this one I used a stamp postioner to stamp one colour at a time with the ‘dressed in snow’ scenic stamp. I used memento markers to ink the evergreens in northern pine, the deciduous in tuxedo black and the fence in rich cocoa inks. After I had stamped all the elements I added a mask for the moon and then painted a tumbled glass distress stain sky.

I spritzed the trees on the left very lightly to blend the colour and painted some tiny background trees on the horizon. Winter is very beautiful where I live but currently it is also rather bleak. Please forgive me the rather brief description; I created this one a while ago and the details are a little sketchy in my memory.

Supplies

Stamps: dressed in snow

Memento markers: northern pine, tuxedo black, rich cocoa
Distress stain: tumbled glass

Paper: hot pressed watercolour, olive green cardstock

Also: stamp positioner, frisket film

    I love this card Heather. I love the stamp too and the other ways you have used it on the run up to Christmas. Each one a different atmosphere. This is crisp and chilly alright. I love the small little shadow you have painted underneath the tree on the right – just brings it all to life somehow.
    Stay warm.

    Another fabulous winter scene Heather and the colours are so pretty, and it really makes you want to don your hat and gloves and go for a walk in that beautiful crisp white snow, and I don’t even really like snow…lol. Seriously this is gorgeous! x

    I’m confused. After you stamped you added a mask for the moon. How did you do this after you already stamped the trees?

      Hi Jacqueline,
      I stamped trees and did all their colouring and then place a circle mask in the sky over the trees so I could paint the sky but keep the moon white.
