Winter Village

This certainly is a busy time of year.  I haven’t been able to post on my blog or play in the SCS challenges for over a week and I sure have missed it. Christmas is almost here and we will soon be turning to Valentine and spring images to play with.  I wanted to do one more good snow scene before I started pulling out my grass sprigs and flower images. I am a little sad each year when the holiday is finally over as snowy Christmas cards are my favorite.

I stamped the Rubbernecker Village on watercolor paper and watercolored with a brush and reinkers. Since I knew I wanted to create snowy roof tops with white craft ink and embossing powder I heat set the color on the houses so the powder wouldn’t stick on wet ink.  I painted the craft ink on the roof tops and ground with a small brush and applied the embossing powder.  I cut the scene out to pop up in front of the forest of trees. I stamped a row of trees on watercolor paper, heat set and then applied craft ink with a brush to create snow on the branches and embossed with white embossing powder.  I sponged in the yellow moon and then sponged the blue night sky around the moon.  I attached the village with mounting tape and then applied glue and white Flower Soft for the soft snow. I didn’t think this project required any embellishment.

I hope you each have a wonderful  Holiday week and enjoy your friends and family.  Merry Christmas!!

  1. OMGosh Kittie, this is beautiful – so stunning! Now, not sure I can do all this that you’ve done on this card. I will have to get me some of the snow stuff. TFS

  2. Kittie, don’t put away your Christmas or snow scene images. Keep making these throughout the year. I love seeing them and they always make me smile no matter how bad my day at the hospital is.

  3. I want to try this snow technique–the craft ink and white ep. (I don’t have the right color of FlowerSoft for that though)
    It looks like real snow–of course my sweet tooth thinks it looks like icing!
    Beautiful card, Kittie–I really love the details! The sky is beautiful!

  4. Hi Kittie: I have been a fan of your blog for over a year now. I have you on my faves. I just love your 3D creations. That birdhouse is adorable and your card with the winter scene makes me want to jump right in.
    Have a great 2010….all the best and I will pop in to say hello,

  5. Wow, Kittie this is a beauty and you finally got to create it on my birthday!!! I know that it was a Sunday because DH took me to a peaceful wintery inn complete with snowtufted trees and a waterfall on the Thurs. because we were the hostessing family for church on my real bday! All your gorgeous snowtufting and the warm color of your houses put me in mind of that cozy little inn. I will miss your wonderful snow scenes until next year…glad I got to pop in and view this one!
