Yes it is COLD!!! And I was inspired by a photo challenge at The House That Stamps Built to create this card. My card is a bit reminiscent of the House on the Prairie. When I saw the inspiration photo below, I immediately thought of some Repeat Impressions stamps that I have not used since I bought them a few weeks ago. I pulled out the Log Cabin, Shade of the Elm (tree), Clouds and sentiment stamps and began with a Blue CS panel. Using the technique of masking I stamped the cabin and 2 elm trees (minus the chairs and shade) with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and stamped and embossed the clouds with Brilliance Moonlight White ink and White Puff EP. I colored the cabin and trees with brown pencils and a yellow glaze pen. I then played with Liquid Pearls and Frosted Lace Stickles to get the snowy effect that I wanted. I also sponged some white on the sky. I liked the card at this point and made a photo shown above. But then I stamped a sentiment "Time To Chill Out" with a cloud just for a bit of Humor. I fussy cut and temporarily attached the sentiment to the card for a second photo below. I am not sure if I will use with or without a sentiment. Any Thoughts?
I finished with a Bright Blue Mat on a Card Base of Chocolate Brown.
