'Winter Trees and Flowers' at Stamping Sensations

Hello there my crafty friends.

It's time for a new challenge over at 'Stamping Sensations' and I can't believe that this is the last one of the year.  This year has flown by so quickly and I've really enjoyed being part of the team, and I'm really looking forward too, to seeing lots of new crafty creations in the year ahead, both from my lovely teamies and from you crafty lot too :)

Our theme this month is 'Winter Trees and Flora' and here's the card that I've made:

As I absolutely love to use white ink on Kraft card, I thought that's what I would do to make this card.  I started by creating the fallen snow using white ink and a mountain stencil and then I went on to stamp my moon and then to use a circular stencil to give it it's shape.  Next, it was time to add my Winter trees and the Deer.  Once everything was in place, I used a white pen to highlight the snow on the trees.  Finally, I heat embossed the Winter sentiment using with white embossing powder and then I dusted around the edges with the white ink and added a few snowflakes.

All of the stamps and stencils that I've used today are by Inkylicious and the inks that I've used are: Colour Box: Frost White and Distress: Ground Espresso.

We are generously sponsored this month by 'Stix 2' and we really hope that you'll be able to join us.

Stamping Sensations is a stamping challenge, so we must see a stamped image, sentiment or quote as the focal element of your artwork, this means: Stamping must be the central point of attention and interest.
