Winter Covered Bridge

Hello stampers! We are continuing with our winter December challenge at Craft a Scene. I wanted to have done a tri-shutter card this week, but time ran out.

I hadn't inked up this Stampscapes Snowy Covered Bridge yet and wanted to use it. All the stamping was done with Archival Watering Can ink, which is a great grey, perfect for a winter scene and softer than the black ink that I often stamp my scenes with. I coloured the scene lightly with lilac and grey dye inks, as usual starting with the lightest shades and building up somewhat darker colours.

Highlights were added with a white gel pen and just a tiny bit if mist by dry-brushing white pigment ink on the scene.

Another Christmas card done! There is till plenty of time to join us in the challenge this month.

Happy Stamping!
