Snow Had Fallen

Well snow has not fallen here in the desert, but at Artistic Outpost, we are having a Winter/Christmas Blog Hop and there is sure to be some falling snow! You won't want to miss what my lovely DT Sisters have in store for you, so here is the list of talent.  
 
Tracy * Terry * Kate * Lisa * Gerrie * Linda 

I started by using Christmas paper from ODBD, cutting it to size and adding some snowy effects with white paint. That little birdie is adorable and then some! Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge has an "Anything Goes," so I am taken this wintery card over there for a visit.

The pinecones from MidWinter were stamped directly on the Christmas paper in Coffee Archival and then clear embossed, colored using Vintage Photo and then highlighting areas with a white gel pen.

Next I stamped the MidWinter snowy sentiment on white, using again Coffee Archival and clear embossed, cut using the Vintage Label die from ODBD, inked in Antique Linen, shaded in Black Soot and then flicked on some snow. Added some snowflakes and holly leaves that were touched up with white paint.

Thank you for stopping by today and hope you will join in the blog hop and also ink up your AO stamps and share at October's Show us your AO Art challenge. You could win something!

  21. This is so elegant and uses words from the only Christmas Carol that I like. Never cared for Carols, my preference is for Christmas songs from eras before I was even a twinkle in my parents' eyes LOL.
    The way you made the pinecones look so dimensional is very clever.
    Have a lovely weekend.
    Wishes
