A new month, and of course a new challenge theme at Craft a Scene. This month we are focusing on winter scenes, a broad theme, perfect for Christmas cards. Don't miss the fabulous DT cards, full of inspiration.
For my first scene of the month, I did a snowy hill using soft colouring:
The scene was coloured with dye inks using a Colorbox Stylus tool, starting with the lightest colour and gradually building up darker colours (see this tutorial). I was being careful when colouring, to not overdo it, since I wanted this scene to have a light and airy feel to it.
Snow and highlights were added with a white gel pen and white pigment ink was dry-brushed here and there on the scene to increase the snowy feeling and create shine. Its a great way to create snow.
Thank you for looking! I hope you will join us this month and show us your winter scenes. Our sponsor this month is Robyn's Fetish digi stamps.
