|This is my entry to the Merry Monday Card Challenge #136.
|My entry to the Inkspirational #70 Designer's Choice and
to the Muse Challenge #95- challenge.
Inspiration for these cards comes from the Muse Challenge. Caroline's card from KISS - Keep It Sweet and Simple is just wonderful wintery scened card. I love to make scenery cards so this was no exception that I wanted to participate. I don't have a tag die (yet) so I ended up making the background scene and then popping up the main image onto the front card panel.
All the stamps are from Purple Onion Designs and I coloured the main images onto a watercolour paper with Derwent Inktense Pencils and fussy cut them out. For the background I used London Fog ink to stamp the image to get the illusion that they are more further away on the back. I coloured them with Derwent Coloursoft Pencils and for the sky I used Distress Inks: Spung Sugar and Dusty Concord and Memento Lulu Lavender. To create a illusion of snowbanks I added Versamark pen to stamped image and then added Vintage Champagne Embossing powder and heat set it.
Here is the close-up where you can see the snowbanks and the glitter on there better.
I will link the snowman card to Merry Monday Card Challenge #136. I am bending the rules a bit, the background sky needed some dimension so I added a hint of purple. And pink is just light red, right? :) I will link the bunny card to the Inkspirational #70 Designers Choice Christmas with a twist. Unfortunately, I had to add a hint a green so I don't qualify for the drawing. And I will link this also to the Muse Challenge #95 - my inspiration from the inspiration card is to make a wintery scened Christmas card.
Here are the challenges' graphics:
Thank you for stopping by today! I am on a holiday for the next two weeks with my family so I am forced to take break from blogging also. :) Have a wonderful day and see you again in two weeks time.
