House in the Woods
by Jeanne Jachna

 Peace-FourJeanne here today with a monochromatic winter themed card.    When I saw the House in the Woods die it looked so peaceful.   I could picture it blanketed in snow on a cold winter's night.   I wanted to create that feeling you have when you're alone walking in the woods - when you're totally at peace -  the air is crisp, and  there is a calm about you.
To create a glow behind the cabin I used a water color wash.  I kept the color more concentrated at the top and used water to lighten the bottom of the panel.
I stamped the "Peace" sentiment from the Poinsettia Peace Clear Stamp set in blue ink, and then wrapped blue twine around the panel several time.  It's secured on the back side  with tape. 
I wanted to duplicate the colors of the watercolor panel on the card base to give a false impression that the die cut was open so I added panels of colored card stock to the base before adhering the die cut panel.  I added a few sequins to make the sky starry... or maybe some snow is just about to land? 
I hope you have a great day!

This is beautiful! I love this house in the woods die! xxx

Oh Jeanne, this is beautiful! It does have a peaceful feel to it. So lovely.

You have me ready for winter, Jeanne. This is so lovely, cool, and peaceful. (As a city dweller outside of Boston, I rarely get to experience peaceful when I'm outdoors. I'll need to seek that this winter, as you've made me miss it.) I really like your three color panel behind this scene. I had to look twice to pick up this important detail. Thanks for sharing, my sweet muse!

The House in the Woods die is an absolute favorite! Love the pretty scene you created for your beautiful card!

This is such a pretty card! I love how you did the panels behind the diecut and the watercoloring is lovely!! I am awaiting the arrival of this die and a couple others so that I can start playing with them! They are stuck in Florida right now due to the storm and I hope for the Floridians that things get back to normal soon so they can resume their daily lives!! TFS!

Hi Jeanne, A beautifully 'peaceful' looking card, I know exactly the kind of atmosphere you were after, and you achieved this beautifully. I love this die.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

This is such a lovely, serene scene. I want to go inside and sit by the fire! Beautiful colors and background panel.

What a wonderful winter scene! I love your ombre colors!

You certainly achieved peace and tranquillity with your card you can almost feel the cool air nipping your cheeks whilst wrapped up in a cuddle coat hat and mittens, fab thanks for sharing.
