Warm winterwishes!

what? already? ....yep it's not liek were having any kind of summer here in the netherlands ;-) lol..

Actually it's the Monday and Wednesday challenge over at Simon Says Stamp that prompted this card.
Monday's challenge is about flora and or fauna and Wednesday is to create a scene (with Newton Nook, but I sadly have none).

I used watercolorpaper for my panel and a Memorybox stencil (garden birch trees) and a Dutch stamp company (marianne design Eline''s xmas ec0148)

I made a mask with Inkadinkado maskingpaper and Aleene's tack it over and over as it wasn;t sticking to this paper, at ll :-(.
I then placed the stencil and used the mini blending tools and Distress inks for the background (Chipped Sapphire, seedles preserves and mustard seed.
I made a snow bank  as well from masking paper and used tumbled glass and mermaid lagoon on those.

I don't remember exactly which colors for the imagaes and tree shading, but Walnut stain for the tree stump and vintage photo for the bunny, the scarf and apple are Ecoline brushmarkers.
The shading on the trees are a few colors combined.
Stamped the sentiment and image with MFT hybrid black ink.

I thought the image, although not Newton's Nook, looked similar to their work.

As the panel is smaller than the cardbase I added gold glitter washi tape to the side and I mounted the panel with foamtape.

  1. Love your sweet scene. It's been in the upper 80s here in cental NY. We're getting summer.

  2. What a truly lovely scene you've created here! I always enjoy seeing your projects so much and this was no exception. I love how you made the background colors blend so beautifully and did more than just a typical sky.
