Winter scenery

Hello there, happy New Year to all you crafty people out there! I’d like to share a new card with you.

The background was created by smudging broken glass distress stains, evergreen bough distress ink and pearl paint dabbers on my craft sheet. I used a Tim Holtz folder to emboss the trees, which I then cut out. I covered them with  a layer of crackle paint and and added a layer of pearl paint dabbers. The icicles and flourish were heat embossed.

This winter scenery is my entry for the following challenges:

Stamps used

  • Crafty individuals: flourish
  • Lavinia: icicles
  • Tim Holtz: snowflakes, sentiment
