Winter Trees

Hello and welcome! Time for a new theme already at Allsorts challenge and it's Sarah's week to host. As winter is just around the corner (definitely already feels like winter over here!!!) she would like to see "Colors of Winter" which is optional so all your new crafty makes are welcome for a chance to win one of our great prizes or to be selected in her top 5. We have a great assortment of prizes for the next two weeks, by AALL and Create who by the way still have some fantastic discounts, many 50% off or more. So if you haven't taken advantage of their fabulous sale yet, don't miss your chance! 

For my card today I went with a simple winter scene using the Penny Black stamp Gorgeous Grove.

I used a mask made of torn copy paper and a circle for the moon then inked the sky with Chipped Sapphire Distress ink. The trees were stamped with Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide ink. A white Posca pen was used to flick some "snowflakes" onto the background and then I added the die cut snowflakes which were done using Penny Black's Dancing Snowflakes dies. On the sentiment portion I used Lawn Fawn's stitched border die. Sentiment is an oldie from Stampin Up.

The tiny sentiment inside the moon is from the Penny Black set Holiday Snippets.

I plan to share with these challenges:

Wonderfully stamped and inked as always Ellie, love seeing your makes they give me so much inspiration even though my stamping attempts never seem to pan out. I've just laughed and commented to Brenda that even my splodges don't turn out well :)
