Showing Something New

Over at SCS, the CAS challenge for this week is "Show Me Your New".  A great opportunity to use a new stamp. 

Since it's unusually snowy and cold here, it definitely felt appropriate to make a card with a snowy scene.  And it's never too early to start the Christmas card stash for next year!


I used the MISTI to get a good impression on watercolour paper, and then painted with my wonderful Gansai Tambi paints and added some chunky white Frantage for falling snow.

It's popped up on fun foam that is adhesive on one side - this has the added bonus of smoothing out the slightly warped watercolour paper.






Supplies:
Stamps - Crafters Companion cottage, Wordsworth sentiment
Ink - Ranger Archival Jet Black
Paper - white cs, watercolour paper
Size - A2
Accessories - Gansai Tambi watercolour paints, fun foam, Frantage chunky white embossing powder

Such a pretty country Winter scene Susan. We are frozen here on the Southern Oregon coast. Staying home today. Roads too icy! Hope you are starting to thaw out. Hugs, Nancy
