I've always been sort of non traditional when it comes to most holidays. I think that's because I sort of "expect" certain colors to come out at certain times of year. I love to be surprised with something unexpected. When I started making this snowy scene I originally gravitated to the traditional blues.. but my paintbrush went for the pinks.. and I'm oh so glad they did because I love how this card turned out.
This card was really simple to make. I started with a base of Watercolor paper and painted Peerless in different shades of pink and red. I splattered white acrylic paint to add to the snowy look.
Now to set the scene. A big snowy GRAND PINE TREE die cut looks so majestic here!
And a small PLAYFUL FAWN is finding his way home on this snowy day! I cut the dies from the same water color paper I painted on so that the white areas would be the same shade.
I'm thinking I might make a whole stack of these to send out for Christmas - it's nice and flat so no extra postage required!
What will you make today?
