Today's card is all about finding peace and joy in nature. Something we are reminded about especially at Christmas time. I think the snow adds to the purity of the woods as well.
So here's what I did to create my card inspired by the challenge at Splitcoast this morning.
I began by pulling out my MISTI and the Snowy Grove stamp from Penny Black. I painted the stamp with my Brushos again and I did that by sprinkling a bit of the pigment powder on my palette, added a touch of water and painted directly onto my stamp and pressed onto my paper. I then randomly painted the stamp again with another colour of Brushos to give different colours to the background trees. By using my MISTI, it is possible to layer the colours and add more colour where needed. I wash my stamp right after I am finished using it with warm water.
After that was dry, I stamped the small Christmas sentiment at the bottom and die-cut the deer from Memory Box. I sponged some Vintage Linen on the deer's back for more interest.
Adding my card to these challenges:
