Snow was falling snow on snow

Aside from the fact that I am currently in Vienna, today is a day for celebration as the lovely ladies from Papercraft Star are back after their November break. Ladies, you have been missed.  Here is their photo’ inspiration for the new challenge:

 And here is my card:

P1060588

The background was made by swooshing on various distress inks with an Inkduster. I tore a piece of paper to create the landline and then just…er..swooshed!  I added a little shading to the land by using the same piece of paper and very lightly using a little Iced Spruce distress ink. Then I added some snow with a white pen.

P1060590I stamped the moon on to the background and then stamped another on to some glitter card and then cut it out to stick to the original.

P1060594

The tree is a die cut and I’ve added some Glitter Frosting to the branches – if you haven’t used this it’s a combination of very fine Flowersoft and glitter.

P1060593

 The little house you will recognise as one of my Dylusions stamps. I stamped a white roof to stick over the top of the red house and added  a little more snow with a white pen.

P1060592

To finish I took a real high stakes gamble and stamped the word directly on to the card. Yep, bonkers! However, I did have a back up plan in the event that it all back fired! The stamp is from a lovely stitched Christmas tree set by Darkroom Door.

  1. This card is just adorable. I love snow..so anything snowy I’ll love. We rarely get snow here though. Glitter Frosting. I’ve never used it but just added to want wish list. Maybe Santa will bring me some. Have a safe trip and a pleasant one.

  2. This is so artistic, I am very impressed. You are such a talented lady.

    And, don’t think I haven’t noticed, you are getting quite a Christmas card collection together.
