It's a Snowy Christmas by Dot Leathbridge
is it snowing in your part of the world?
Where I live I can only dream of a white Christmas, it's usually hot here.
It doesn't stop me from making snowy scenes though.
I think it would be awesome to have a white Christmas.
Today I've a tutorial for you showing how to make
this snowy Christmas card.
Are you ready to see how it is made?
Here we go.
I stamped and masked some clouds before stamping the moon
in the middle of the masks.
The moon and clouds are from the stamp set called Celestial.
I wanted some extra clouds so I repeated this step.
After having a play around with some trees,
I decided to combine a tree from Textured Christmas Trees
with a tree from Whimsical Winter as I liked the snow on the top of them.
The same masking technique used for the clouds was used for the trees.
Then they were cut out as one piece as well.
to have a dark background to represent night time.
This is a grey ink, but when the water was added to it
there were purple patches in it.
I was thrilled!
Straight away thoughts of snow came to mind.
That will be added later.
and created snow drifts using the same colour ink as that used for the background.
The snowflakes, from Whimsical Winter, are done with white EP.
water colours and pencils.
The stamp is from Whale Wishes.
The bubble stamp makes for great snow don't you think?
colouring to some of the snowballs falling from the sky.
I edged the card with black ink to finished the background
and then decided at the last minute to add some Old Book Page
randomly to fill in a couple of spots.
I can't help myself lol.
To finish, the pieces have been attached and the
background matted onto black and white card.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
