It Is Well

Sunday, January 24, 2016


 There is something very serene and peaceful when it snows...it's so quiet; like you're under a blanket.  I know there are a lot of folks who have more "blanket" than they'd like around them right now -- hope you are all safe and warm!

I had so much fun creating this card.  I started with sponging the sky using taupe and just a spattering of blush then added the die cut the tree limbs.  The fence was created with wood grain pattern paper that I cut and sponged a bit with white ink.  Taking white paint on a brush, I tapped it around the card to create "snow" then silver embossed the sentiment.  The cardinal is a multi-layering stamp from The Kitchen Sink (love their stamps because they look so real when you're finished) and then fussy cut.  To top it off, I added some clear, iridescent sequins.
