Frosted Aspens

Today I have a blue winter scene to share. I love this Frosted Aspens stamp, it gives an immediate snowy feeling to a card.

The scene is done on glossy cardstock and coloured with dye and pigment inks. The Aspens were stamped twice with Adirondack Denim and then the pond was stamped with Stonewashed. The scene was coloured using a Colorbox Stylus Tool with the following inks: Aqua, Stonewashed, Stormy Sky, Denim, making sure to leave most of the Aspens and the pond the white of the paper. Stars were added with a white gel pen. White pigment ink was sponged over and under the trees, and Leafless Limbs was stamped with both blue dye and white pigment ink as a foreground. A grass texture stamp was stamped with white ink here and there to add texture.

Thank you for stopping by!
