Winter scene

You'd think after the last few weeks we'd all have had enough of making Christmas cards, wouldn't you? But it's only 11 months until the next lot of Christmas cards need to be in the post, you know! No slacking allowed!


For this card I stamped the image on a scrap of spare card, using a Kaleidacolor pad and a  stamp from a recent issue of Creative Stamping. Then I used a water brush to draw the colour into all the shapes and to soften the distant outlines, and picked up a little more colour from the pad to colour the sky. I then stamped the sentiment on the card using the next "segment"  of the pad along from the ones used on the image. I die cut the image and added it to the card, covering the join with a scribbled wreath die cut from silver mirri card.

  8. So pretty how you stamped the winter village and then used water and a brush to soften the look. Such beautiful and icy colours make it look so cold. Gorgeous design Jane! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour!
