Winter Blues

We have a new lovely challenge at Sweet Stampin'; Black and White with a splash of colour. We're being sponsored by Marianne Designs and Di's Digis with a fantastic prize for the winner, check our blog for all details and the teams fabulous projects.

I went for my fav colour, blue, obviously! I've seen a lot of this kind of cards lately so I thought that I've have a go too.

Simon Says Stamps: Photo Inspiration

Materials used:
Inkylicious trees stamped with black Versa Fine ink on to water colour card.
Torn copy paper to make masks for the slopes.
The blue Distress inks were added with the stippling technique.
Splattered Gesso for wild snow fall look, tiny beads for texture, extra dots made with a white Sakura pen.
Stickles for icy feel.

Thank you so much for visiting, it's much appreciated. Have a wonderful weekend sweeties! I'll have a relaxing weekend, it has been two busy weeks at work and now at last I can put my feet up for a moment and have a choccie or two before the Christmas preps. Stay safe and warm!
