All is calm

Hello and Happy New Year everyone! I did manage to make a couple of new cards yesterday but didn't get a chance to photograph them yet, so instead I'm bringing you another Christmas cards

This one is from Penny Black - Dressed in Snow.

I just love these stamps.  Pop them into your MISTI, colour and stamp away.  I used Tombow markers for colouring the trees.  Once I obtained the colour and depth of the shading, I clear embossed the image.  I then used MFT stitched rectangle die and cut it  out. 

Since I clear embossed it, this will resist any inks applied, which is what I love about this technique.
I sponged my background using Memento inks.  With a white gel pen I added some 'snow' along some of the branches of the bare tree and along the fence, and also added some dots for falling snow.

Using Penny Black Festive Snippets, I place my scene back in my Misti, placed the sentiment where I wanted it, then inked and stamped.  I did this a couple of times to get a good impression.

 I layered the image onto some gold mirri paper then onto some white cardstock.

A quick and easy card. 

Thanks for your visit, have a wonderful day!

I just love the soft effect you have going with the blend of colours. I just looks so calming. You did a terrific job!! I just love looking at your cards.

Oh, my word! This technique is the best reason I've seen to want a MISTI. Mere words cannot convey how breathtakingly beautiful I find this. Absolutely incredible!!!

Beautiful scene to start off the new year with. Hoping that sentiment will set the precedent for the year. Happy new year Pauline!
