Winter Forest

Julie Warner -


Happy Friday!

For today’s Free for All Challenge (F4A150), we are to make a frosty friendship card. And for the Queen for the Day Challenge (QFTD146), everyone is the queen and we are to pick a card of our own and case it.  I think my little winter forest scene fits the bill on both counts. I cased my card Summer Cranes and kept the same framed layout but made it a winter scene and changed the hot summer colors into cool winter shades.

The image is a sneak peek from DRS Designs. Since the scene is so complete all on its own, I decided to keep it simple and just let the image do the talking. I used two different rainbow ink pads to ink it up…first I used the varied greens, then tapped the bottom half against the varied blues. The moon/sun part was wiped off and I ink it w/ the black ink. I added a bit of shadowing and some color to the moon/sun using Copics.

The oval frames were die cut and I used the white pigment ink to stamp the sentiment and little stars across the top. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
