I had trouble getting a decent photo of the card since it's so cold and overcast here I took the photo inside and I couldn't get the white to look white! I tore a mask for the ground and punched a circle for the moon. Then I used my Copics air gun (YAY me!!! I finally used it!!) to spray the sky. After spraying the sky, I inked up the tree stamp and stamped it so that the trees would appear to be behind the hill of snow. Then I removed the lower mask used for the ground. Some of the trees appeared to be floating in the air, so I just colored in the bottom of the trees to meet the ground with a marker that matched the ink color. I added the fence with a stamp from Stampscapes. I had to stamp it three times to get it across the card. Then I added a little Copics light gray shadows for the trees and fence. I'm still working on getting the shadows right. But practice makes perfect...right? The sentiment stamp is from PaperTrey Ink.

OLW36 - Bare trees
This week's OLW36 Challenge is hosted by Jennifer Styles at Styles Ink. Our challenge was to use a bare tree, or bare vegetation of some kind which means no leaves, no needles, no buds, no flowers. We could use as many images/sentiments/colours as we wanted to, but needed to use one plant image that is “bare”. Well, I hope this counts as one image....after all the trees were all on one stamp. Does that count?
