I am sharing today the last of my Christmas in July makes but I am sure I will be returning to Christmas very soon.
I have used the same stamp set as before, the Snowflake Sentiments Clear Mount set and also Lovely As A Tree both are from Stampin Up.
So for this card I wanted to create a winter scene.
I started by creating the sky by blending different shades of blue ink and a little bit of highland heather to the top of my card. I then cut a little mask to use to make the snow drifts and inked up to this to where the sky ends.
I then inked above the mask where I wanted the snow banks to be.
Next I stamped my trees so that they looked like they were buried in the snow drifts.
To do this I place my mask over the area where the snow drift is and stamped the image. As I had masked off the area the full image wasn't stamped and the trees look like they are in deep snow.
I did make a small mistake as I didn't leave a little gap and the tree at the back looked like it was floating. So I had the idea of stamping the snow flakes over the background and one at the bottom of the tree where I made the mistake. Problem solved.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you like my Christmas in July week?
More Christmas coming soon.
