A Winter Scene Card

Hello again. I am back to making a card. It has taken me a bit longer then I thought it would to get my strength back but it is improving little by little. So yesterday I worked on the card in the afternoon and then finished it in the evening after I had rested for a bit. Hubby was gone for the evening so I did not have to fix supper.


I am entering this in the Mod Squad Blog Challenge and the NBUS # 7 Challenge. The stamped scene image on this card is my Never Before Used Schtuff. And, the Mod Squad challenge says to use a pet or animal on the entries this week. So I am hoping this will be acceptable for those challenges.




This is a stamp from Penny Black called Sentinel. I thought it would be a unique and different type of card for Christmas and winter time giving. I used my MISTI to help get the colors dark enough. I used a combination of water based pens and dye inks to color it. I also added some snow to the trees using a white Uni-Posca paint pen.

I layered it onto Gina K. Designs Jelly Bean Green card stock and then onto the Gina K. Designs Ivory card base. Well, not much more to add I think. It is quite a simple card but I don't think it needed lots of embellishment.


It sure felt good to make a card again. I want to thank all of you for the get well wishes and prayers. They meant a lot to me and I know that I am feeling better each day because of them.

God bless,
Verna
