Instructions

Winter Scene Card Step 1

Step 1:  Work on the images. Stamp the tree branch from the Autumn Greetings stamp set and the candles from the Warm Wishes stamp sets on Tim Holtz Distress® Watercolor Cardstock. Use Archival Ink in Black Soot and watercolor the images using Wendy Vecchi Blendable Dye Inks.

For the bird in the Autumn Greetings stamp set, stamp the image with Archival Ink in Hickory Smoke. Stamp the belly with Red Geranium Ink by Wendy Vecchi and add line details with a Black Fineliner.

Step 5:  Create a snowfall with White Media Gloss Spray by Dina Wakley. For more control, remove the nozzle and tap on it, rather than spraying on the panel directly.

    I love the way you make cards with images. I’m so afraid of messing them up, so I’ve been using ephemera, stickers, etc. on my cards. I need to get braver and try. Be well, Laura!
