Winter

Good morning. Its a little better weather wise today, I actually saw a patch of blue sky at breakfast! I hope we don't have a really bad winter. I know being snowed in for a week allowed me to craft away but the logistics of getting the shopping in was a nightmare. 
So when I saw this stamp on one of my forays to a little shop in the back garden of a house near the Welsh border I had to have it.
Its by Hobby Art and I have already used it in the card for my hubby, In the Country.



This time I resurrected my watercolour pens from the bottom of the drawer to give a softer finish to the image. I then added some 'Shabby White' frantage to give the snow effect. I also added some extra branches to the trees to balance it out. 
The image was mounted onto some brown card then gold mirror card. The framed image was then mounted on pads on a pre stamped 5x7 white card stamped with the Papermania Christmas words stamp (currently on sale via Do Crafts web page) in Tim Holtz 'tattered straw' and then edged in the same.

I will enter it for the following challenges:-
abc challenge - Y for yellow
Addicted to stamps and more - Keep it simple
Thanks for dropping by.

  1. The weather is a good excuse, super card, loved it as the background and even better standing alone.
    Let's hope the crafting is 'ON' on Wednesday.
