Winter Scene House of Cards January Challenge

 


Create a card using some embossing and/or these colors:
 
a door tones


It's time for another new monthly challenge here at House of Cards! I decided to go with the embossing and the colors.  It was so fun with my new Misti, I colored my stamp with watercolor  markers and then topped it off with Versamark ink and embossed with holographic embossing powder to mimic a snowy look.

Hello, Donna! This is gorgeous! I love the cabin stamp! Sounds like you are loving your MISTI! Got one for my birthday in October and I don't know how I stamped without it before - I love mine too! But back to your card... I really like the die-cut deer - such a nice detail! You did great with the inspiration photo!

Diane said...

I don't know how I missed this card! It is beautiful. I love the holographic snow and the die cuts are perfect. Great job coloring, will be great for a winter birthday.

Hi Donna, just saw this on SnS challenge, and thought I'd commented, but since I don't see it, here I go: Love the way you've interpreted the inspiration colors, with the neutral colors on this great card. Could be for either gender, and is so evocative of a cold winter day. Really like the way you've placed the scene with the deer grazing outside the perimeter. #2 just sparkles with the 'falling snow' and is just so icy in the feel of this cabin scene. Very versatile image & you've used it beautifully on both cards. TFS & Hugs
