Snow Scene

I saw a tutorial by Heather Telford on the Penny Black blog the other day for a snow scene, and decided to give it a try.  I adapted the tutorial by using the supplies I have on hand; for example, instead of using Miskit on watercolour paper for the "snow", after the scene was done on regular cardstock I spritzed with Perfect Pearls mist. I like that it gives a bit of glimmer to the snow spots.

 I used Tim Holtz distress inks Spun Sugar, Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans,  Tumbled Glass for the sky and snow hills, along with Pumice Stone for the trees in the background. Regular black Archival ink for the foreground trees. Instead of the Penny Black branch, I used a tree from an older Stampin' Up set. After I stamped them, I didn't realize the rubber had shifted on the wood block, so they came out a little crooked. It has to be years since I last used this set! Well, I can pretend there was a strong northeast wind on a stormy, wintery night.  tee hee hee. Tim Holtz Rock Candy stickles glitter was dabbed on the branches for  some icy glitz!

Added a verse with the Spellbinders Fancy Ribbon Tag set and a sheer ribbon, as well as a silver snowflake. There is also a bit of Stickles Star Dust glitter on the tree branches for extra shimmer.

This card was quite easy to do actually, and would be good to do in multiples. Have to remember it for next year!
