If it’s Monday, then it’s time for the Outlines Monday Challenge! This week, the challenge is Winter Wonderland. Make a winter/snow themed card or project. You can check out all the details on the Outlines Blog.
For my winter card, I used this wonderful Tree Branch and stamped it with indigo ink on the slate blue c/s. I shaded it just a bit using Tombow markers and added snow with a white gel pen. The two sizes of Flurry snowflakes were stamped in indigo and also denim inks. I added a few of the smaller flakes stamped and embossed with white embossing powder. More highlights were added with the white gel pen and the centers dotted with a Viva Decor Pearl Pen.
The greeting was also white embossed on a gold flecked navy piece of c/s. I attached it on top of a sentiment frame and colored in the dots. The finished card is 6.50 x 5.00.
Just for fun, I thought I’d show you my color inspiration for this challenge. I had this snowflake dp and while I was hunting for c/s to go with it, I found this Martha Stewart paint chip in my stash and those are the colors I used. This is a page in my little 9.5 x 7 notebook. I keep little leftover paper and ribbon swatches and bare bones notes on the card. It helps me remember what I did and what I used. I don’t know how many of these I’ve gone through, but they’ve really come in handy plenty of times and I don’t have to guess what I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope to see your creation for our Monday Challenge and please stop by and check out the details on all of the DT’s cards.
