OK, so I know that many of us are really tired of winter, especially shoveling snow, but for TSTR's challenge, our inspiration was this beautiful photo. We have a few inches of snow in our forecast for the next coming days, too.
I used Mojo Monday 175 for my layout. It was a fun sketch to use!
I had a hard time photographing this card due to the glitter, so the blue ribbon is appearing much darker than IRL. I used the emboss resist technique, but then I covered up most of the embossing on the tree with Stickles crystal glitter. I used MS tinsel glitter in crystal for the sparkly snow on the ground.
Here's a closeup. You can see the differences in the two kinds of glitter a little better, and just a teeny tiny bit of the tree bark peeking through all of the snow.
Here's what I used:
Stamps: SU! "Lovely as a Tree" and All That Scras "Itzie Inkies Stamp Set - Wintertime Fun" for the sentiment (I think this set has been retired).
Inks: Versamark, SU! Bashful Blue (sponged), Vintage Photo Distress Ink (sponged)
Other: Clear embossing powder, blue satin ribbon from stash, Bow Easy, recycled corsage pin, misc. beads, snowflake button, Cuttlebug emossing folder, Sizzix embossing folder
Technique: emboss resist
Thanks for stopping by!
ETA: Thank you to Debbie and TSTR DT for choosing my card as one of the Honorable Mention Cups of Tea for this challenge!
