A Winter Scene

This card uses a little cottage stamp from Nellie Snellen called Idyllic Winter Scene. It could be used any time of the year but to make it into a snowy scene I used a combination of Kraft card and White ink.  I made a stencil by cutting a circle in some scrap card with a circle die. I then held it down with some tape and using a piece of sponge or a Smoothie from Creative Expressions, I blended some Versacolour White pigment ink through the stencil. Once I was happy with that I stamped the cottage with Archival Coffee ink so it stood out on top of the White.  I then removed the stencil and using the Let it snow stamp from the previously used Marianne Christmas Song stamp set I inked it up with the Archival stamp again and stamped across the bottom of the circle.

To bring out some more snowy effect I used a White pencil to colour in the roof and some other areas and added some falling snow with  Sakura Soufflé White pen. I also added some twinkle by using a glue pen and some Glamour Dust glitter. You could use Stickle glitter glue .

This card is very flat and ideal for posting. You could of course add other embellish to like punched out snowflakes to create a more 3D card. You could also use bauble die if you have one bug enough and create a stencil using that.
