I hope all of you this side of the pond are having a smashing May Day Bank Holiday, the weather for once is on it's best behaviour!
I can't believe a fortnight has gone since the last STAMPlorations sketch challenge but it must be as here is my card for the latest sketch!
I know, Christmas already, still the cards are stacking up so I wont be on the last leg when it comes to December!
Here is this month's sketch.
As soon as I saw it it reminded me of rolling hills so I went with the twist of snowy ones!
The trees are STAMPlorations Tree Silhouettes and the greeting is made up of words from two sets, Sentiment Builders- Happy and Blossom Overture.
The sky was inked using Salty Ocean DI then spritzed with a little water and the snow drifts were cut using a MFT die. The trees were stamped and embossed in white then coloured over with Copics and some chunky white EP was added for falling snow. The panel was then placed on a kraft base card.
OK, that's it from me, for more inspiration pop over to the main blog or check out the fab DT and GDs for details of their cards.
