Winter Forest



It's Anja here. Today I have a Winter scene for you. This time I used water color markers instead of inks and below is my final result.

For this card I used:

- Cottage Cutz dies (Winter Forest, Oval Set),

- Distress Oxides,

- water color markers,

- craft card base (15x15 cm),

- water color paper for die cuts and background (13x13 cm),

- dark blue card stock for background (13,4x13,4 cm),

- white paint,

- white pigment ink,

- black pigment ink,

- water spritzer,

- sentiment stamp,

- acrylic block,

- water color brush,

- brush,

- heat gun,

- paper glue.

First I colored the silhouette. I left it together with the negative so it was easier to color.

Next I added "snow" to the trees using white paint and a brush.
Then I started on the background. I trimmed 13x13 cm square out of the water color paper. I used the biggest oval die from the set and cut the oval out in the upper middle of the paper. I colored the paper with a mix of Distress Oxides. Then spritzed it with water, dried it and sprinkled it with white paint. Dried it again and added white ink to the borders of the oval.

Then I trimmed the blue cardstock and adhered it to the card base together with the white background. I put the colored oval back in the cut. I added the sentiment below the oval.

Last I added the silhouette and my card was done. 

This is all from me for today. Have a nice week and see you again next Sunday.
