Well - in just 3 short posts I've gone from Summer, into Fall and now straight to Winter! I just had to share this card and the posts that inspired me.
Loll is the Queen for the Day over at Split Coast this week - and I cased her Delicate Branches card. She masked and sponged to create her wonderful shadows and she also gave credit to Heather Telford for inspiring her. Heather used a technique of stamping the image twice - once with Versamark then again in black slightly off set - then clear embossing. When you mask the slopes and sponge - the ink doesn't color where the embossing is so you get this nice 'snow shadow'. I added some silver pearls for forest ornaments!
Now I must say - I didn't come close to Loll's or Heather's beautiful designs - but I'm happy with my first shot at it and will work on the techniques they used to achieve their great shading!
I'm entering my card in this week's CAS-ology Challenge - sky .
I wonder what season I'll be in for my next post?!
