Nature's Friends Winter Woodland Scene

Hello, friends.  I hope you've had a crafty weekend.

I've been using up some odds and ends and having a great time in the studio.

Blizzard warning!

I pulled out a background of smooshed Lindy's Magicals
and stamped from the Nature's Friends set.  The background was done on
coated paper and didn't stamp well, so I'm glad I had put it in my MISTI.
It took several tries, but I finally got good coverage.

Then, so I wouldn't smudge it, I sprinkled the stamping with
clear embossing powder and heat set.

I tore some snippets of white for snowbanks and sprinkled some
chunky white Frantage on top, then heated it from the bottom so it wouldn't
all blow off.  I found out that these chunky flakes really spread out on embossing.
LOL, it looks like snowballs flying through the air! 

I've put a little Dazzling Details over the top of the snowbanks for sparkle
and added a bit of scoring behind the design piece.

I almost ran out of time for the challenge at
I'm slipping in just under the wire.


'Anything Goes'
'Black, White & One Other Colour'

I'll add this to the gallery at CAS  Christmas too.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

A gorgeous background for your stamped deer, tree and overhanging branches Bonnie, and the Frantage looks great for falling snow, and some pretty glittery tops to your snow slopes. A super card! x
