Snow falling on trees

The card I have today I must admit took a little time to work out but once the grey matter in hy head woke up and thought methodically I was on to card number three.

Top tip: Draw a line from front to back of stamp with permanent pen so that you can see where the base of the tree is and it makes it easier to see where the stamps are lined up.



I stamped the trees from the Fat Robin stamp sheet three times onto copy paper using the pen line to help me line them up. Then I tore the copy paper for the snow covered ground. Place the paper mask over silk art card and brayer Adirondack sail boat blue.
When the sky is dry stamp the trees using the pen lines on the stamp to help. Dot the snow using a Inkssentials opaque white pen. I added the Merry Christmas sentiment to the bottom. I used silver mirri and blue card to layer then mounted onto the base card.
The base card has been stamped with snowflakes.
This really is a quick card to make.

Thanks for popping by and please come back as there's more inspiration to come.

  4. Beautifully elegant & stylish. I love the way the double matting has really made the image the focal point. The snow drifts are superbly aligned - thanks for tip about lining up. Working out the logistics of something that might appear simple isn't always so in practice.
