Winter Scene

I have been making more master boards - I hope that some of you may be receiving cards like this around about now!

I used Stormy Sky, Bundled Sage and Evergreen Bough dabbed onto a mat, spritzed and then dragged some water colour paper through.The trees were stamped with EB and BS and spritzed to give a watery feel! A little bit of spattering with Picket Fence Distress paint and the sentiment stamped in black and clear embossed. The edges were darkened with what was on my sponge! I used up some papers from my stash to mount the scene onto Kraft card.

I would like to enter the challenge at
 Country View Crafts where the theme is Create a Scene
  Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge where the theme is Winter Wonderland

I'll be back tomorrow with photos of what we have been up to!

Thanks for looking, Chris

fabulous card, Chris. I am looking forward to a few days off but not sure if I'll get any crafting done (I hope so, it's been ages since I had a really good session!) Hope you have a very happy Christmas.

This is gorgeous Chris. It has a dreamy, rather ethereal feel to it.

This is lovely, Chris. The soft stamping of the trees is beautiful, and I love the colour tones. I'd happily take a walk in your winter woodlands.
