Winter birch

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge using Penny Black products.

First I stamped a tree from the Woodsy cling set (40-812), masked off the trunk and a strip towards the bottom of my card and blended some blue distress ink across the background and added a little green ink to the base. I removed the masks and used a watercolour pen to add some sparkle to the white section. Unfortunately, the sparkle didn’t photograph at all so I has to go back and add a little texture to the snow using a light grey coloured pencil. I added a sentiment from the When Snow Falls set (30-881) and lots of stickles to the tree – this card is very sparkly in real life!

I felt the card needed a little extra so I added a few birds from the Harmony With Nature die set (51-707) to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by!
