Winter Landscape

 It's beginning to look a lot like Winter at my house.

So meet today's card.  
A very simple one for Christmas and easy to mail too.  

I began by stamping the image from Flonz with black Memento ink.  I watercoloured in the open areas using some Distress inks and let dry.  
I wanted to add snow to the trees and did that by using a Versamark pen and embossed it with white powder.  I splattered the open area with white acrylic paint to add to the snowy feel.
To finish off my card, I stamped the sentiment from Paper Smooches.



Adding my card to these challenges:

Stamping Sensations- CHRISTMAS GREETING

The Paper Players- CAS CHRISTMAS

Allsorts Challenge- O CHRISTMAS TREE

Daring Cardmakers- INSPIRED BY CHRISTMAS SONGS
(I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas)
