Happy Monday!! I DO brake for snowy villages!! The picture below is a just a snap shot of the view out my Studio window! Yesterday, it was 40+ degrees and rainy.....crazy Wisconsin weather!!
The card, I'm sharing today, was inspired by this craziness! I began by creating a background using the Splattered Ombre Watercolors Tutorial from Technique Junkie Newsletter. It's a fun little technique that looks very snowy to me!
I used the largest building from IBFS's Cats and Buildings stamp sheet. After stamping the building on white cardstock, I colored it with a grey Copic marker--adding just a bit of yellow in a few of the window areas. I stamped a second image and selected one building to highlight.....I imagine that would be my friend's house...I popped it up on dimensional tape to give the finished card a bit more interest!
My sentiment is also from IBFS, but I will save you the time of trying to seek it out on your own. I used a sentiment from the Rick St. Dennis Holiday Bear Sheet. It comes with a sentiment that says "Have a Beary Merry Christmas." When inking it, I covered the "Have a Beary" portion before applying it to the ink pad. I was able to omit that part and end up with the perfect sentiment!
Of course, if that is a bit too putzy for you, I'm sure you will find something perfect RIGHT HERE!
Thanks for stopping by! TTFN, Jane
