Let It Snow, Warm Winter Wishes & Season's Greetings - Rocky Mountain Scene
Yogi here today with a Northern Sky (with artistic license...) - Rocky Mountain Scene... Since I live pretty close to them I get to see them all the time. Majestic and awe inspiring - and I'm not or ever have been a skier... c'est la vie.
I'm using a whole bunch of A Way With Words dies or parts of dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs "Let It Snow", "Warm Thoughts" 2pce set; "4 Season's - Winter" 4pce set; "Best Wishes"; "Ampersands" & "Season's Greetings" also available on Quietfire Design HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE
Also using a couple of rubber stamps from Quietfire Design ("Let It Snow" large); ("Winter Wonderland" 6pce set)
Scored, and folded my purple card (5"w x 7"h).
Created the Rocky Mountains by cutting a mask of the mountains from thin cardstock and laying it down on my white cardstock. Sponged Distress "Broken China" softly all over the sky. Then going in a streaky up and down vertical motion with the rest of the colors (Picked Raspberry", "Mustard Seed". "Seedless Preserves") then blending lightly with the blue sponge again getting a Northern Lights type of look... with artistic license...
Flipped and moved the mask down and just sponged some of the "Chipped Sapphire" along the edges lightly to create the definition between the mountains. Repeated one more layer down, then added some shadow/crevices within the mountains by using edges of my mountain mask and mainly sponging on the mask with the edge of the sponge just skimming the edge of the mask.
Die cut the "Let It Snow" from a purple cardstock, inked with Versamark and embossed with Emerald Creek "Frosted Plum" embossing powder. Adhered to card.
Stamped the "Let It Snow" and the trees (Rosewood "Snowy Trio") using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.
Die cut the skies and poles from white cardstock and colored with markers and Distress pads.
On the inside: die cut the various words (Warm Winter Wishes &) from white cardstock, inked with Versamark and embossed with Emerald Creek "Soft Fallen Snow" embossing powder.
Die cut the "Season's Greetings" from a gold glitter sticky backed paper, then added a white shadow line detail.
Adhered all the words.
On the right side, stamped the house scene (Impression Obsession "J7763") using the black. Added the white details using a paint brush and my mix of Copic White Opaque ink mixed with water to a milky consistency.
Stamped the deer with the black and filed in with the white.
Stamped the snowflakes using Distress "Picket Fence" and embossed with the fallen snow.
Added the smoke from the chimney with a white colored pencil.
