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

(I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas)

 Thanks so much for visiting...I so appreciate it!!

Supplies:  stamps- Flonz, Paper Smooches/ ink- Memento, Distress/ paintbrush/ Versamark pen/ wh Eb powder/ white acrylic paint

Oh my gosh I love this and LOVE that stamp! It's how you used it that's so fabulous! I studied it quite a while before realizing it's not a window card but just looks that way. This is brilliant, Karen!

What a wonderful winter scene. I like how the trees are very staid and traditional with their cool water colored sky and then the greeting it quirky and whimsical.
