Serendipity Nov Blog Hop #1!

Welcome to the Nov #1 Blog Hop
 for Serendipity Stamps
For my very wintry scene, I placed the image into my Misti, stamped & colored the bridge scene, then masked it & the ground area. Since the trees are basically solid lines, I didn’t worry about masking them. The right side of the sky was sponged w/ the pink Distress inks & blue on the left. Then I spritzed it w/ mixture of very thin white acrylic paint & water. I mixed it about 3 or 4 to 1, (water to paint) in a mini mister. I’ve had this mix in this mister for at least a couple of years & so far it hasn’t clogged. I just shake it well before using each time. After removing the mask,  I used a white gel pen to add snow to the trees & rocks then stamped over the image again. The vellum overlay was embossed w/ a snowflake frame folder & I fussy cut out the center before sandwiching it between the cut out card front & a stitched frame, then I attached the bridge scene underneath. I also added a few snowflakes I punched out of white glitter paper. This is also for the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS614) & I chose THIS to case. 

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are Copic I used.
