it’s all about winter…

This weeks’ City Crafters’ Challenge is all about winter! Summer seemed to last way too long this year, but winter arrived in autumn! I love the images of winter, snow, frost, sweaters and hats…everything except sliding on ice!  This challenge was another reason to play with water colors in a color palette that I remember being entranced by as a child. I had a headscarf that was in just these shades of blues and I wore it every chance I had, even when it was perhaps a bit too warm 😉

I worked with yet another square of water color paper that I flicked with liquid masking fluid and then heat embossed the stamped image of trees, in white embossing powder. It’s such a simple and pleasurable technique…

I stamped a simple sentiment in grey ink and matted the square on an ultra blue card stock followed by a larger layer of white and then adhered the layers to a heavy white card base…

I am becoming rather addicted to the snow blown effect! It makes me happy~  Two posts ago I showed the first in what is quickly becoming a series of images created in exactly the same way. The only difference is the colors! Oh that just gave me another idea!…

Thank you for stopping by and I’m hoping you’re cosy while you’re thinking about winter, inspired by City Crafters’ gorgeous image…
