Winter Bliss

I can almost feel the cold flakes of snow hitting my face when I look at this scene.
This was done on a piece of glossy white card stock.
- (1) lightly sponge on SU Sahara Sand onto the top half of the glossy CS.
-(2) Stamp the background trees using SU Sahara Sand so the bases of the trees are on the line where the sky meets the snow.
-(3)Stamp the the trees in the forground and the tiny snowflakes using white pigment ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder.
-(4)Create pond using a sponge to smudge on an oval shape.
-(5)To add shimmer to card go over white trees, snowflakes, grasses, edges of pond, and skate trails with quickie glue pen and a dazzling diamonds or glitter of choice.
-(6)Punch corners of glossy white with ticket corner punch.Mount on black paper. Put Brads through corners and attach to white card base.
-(7)Stamp image and sentiment on white. Color hedgie, cutout, and attach on pond using pop dots. Mount sentiment on black paper and attach to card.
-(8) Hand punch small snowflakes add glitter and attach them to the card with pop dots.
Stamps used: -Tree from Stampin' Up Lovely as a tree set
- Skating Hedgie and sentiment from Penny Black
Thanks for looking hope you give it a try!
