Crisp and White

As you may remember from a previous post, I have been experimenting with a brayer. I've been in awe of cards I've seen using various techniques and been spending loads of time playing around. And, as you have probably noticed, I really like these Eskimo stamps from Elzybells, so I have combined the two.

I used a torn piece of paper to create the snow mounds and brayered the sky. The tree stamp is from Lavinia Stamps. Again, I masked off the snow and stamped the trees giving the effect of them being in the distance. Oops, forgot to say that the Eskimo was stamped first and masked off. I coloured him with Adirondack inks. The sentiment stamp is also Elzybells.

I matted the image onto some green and then white card. The background paper was a plain sheet which has been stamped with a snowflake stamp. I stitched around the paper cuz I like the effect. The ribbon is by Poppicraft.

Sorry the picture is a bit dark. Thanks for stopping by.
