Winter Cottage

Happy New Year!!! We are starting 2013 with a new challenge at Craft a Scene, Winter Cottages. I love seeing little cottages in a snowy landscape, so this was a great challenge theme for me. This month our sponsor is Delicious Doodles, and I used one of their images for my card:

I hardly ever use digital images, being more of a rubber stamp person, but I really like this lovely winter landscape. It was printed on glossy cardstock and coloured with dye inks, mainly light blues and greys, and red for the cottage. To frame the image, I stamped some Stampscapes branches at the corners. Highlights were added with a white gel pen.

The cardbase if dry embossed and sanded kraft-core cardstock and the white frame was die cut with Framelits.

I hope you'll join us this month and show us those wonderful winter cottages.

Thank you for stopping by!

  1. Anna-Karin, this is Gorgeous! I love how you have coloured it. I must try printing onto glossy card. A beautiful card!

  2. How beautiful - the icy colouring is absolutely perfect for a bleak midwinter scene, with the warmth of the walls and that fire inside as a wonderful contrast - lovely!
