I know!  Another snowy scene.  I can’t help myself.  I promise to do some non Christmas cards soon. I love the large pine tree in the Rubbernecker 3 Tree Set.  It is so majestic and fun to stipple paint. Check out my Winter Snow Scene and stipple technique if you would like to see a complete tutorial on how I create my  snowy trees. I used Liquid Applique for the snow on this project instead of white craft ink and embossing powder but you get the same snowy effect.

I started by stamped the tree with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and heat set.  I used a dry brush rubbed directly on the ink pad to gather ink and use a light stipple motion to apply ink to the tree limbs and trunk.

This technique gives a fuller depth of color than simple watercoloring with reinker.

When I completed coloring the trees I sponged blue ink around the whole tree to softly highlight. I added touches of Liquid Applique on the branches and ground area and dabbed it with my finger to smooth it out to avoid the dreaded blobs when heating.

I die cut the Leaping Deer using kraft cardstock and sponged Vintage Photo ink to add color.  I sponged on Walnut Stain on the antlers, hooves and nose.  I attached a tiny red satin bow and tiny sprigs of pine to the neck to add another touch of Christmas.

I hope you haven’t tired of my snowy scenes yet.  I seem to get on a roll with something and can’t stop until I sear out on it.  Remember all the rolled roses?????  LOL! 

The deadline for commenting for a chance to win my blog candy is today by noon.  You will definitely need to stop by on Thursday morning to see how in incorporated some of your suggestions to make this card more complete.
