I needed to make my sister a birthday card and she likes the larger cards so I made a 5 x 7. It accomodates my image perfectly.
I used masking fluid with a splatter brush to make some falling snow, then inked my stamp. Using the MISTI, I stamped each leaf and the berries/branches separately. I then used my blender pen to move the ink around to cover each one. Afterwards, I used a w/c brush to w/c the background. It was then time to remove the masking fluid, stamp a sentiment, and add a few stamped snowflakes.

Oh Brenda, this is just stunning! These gorgeous leaves and berries look so rich and vibrant with just the right amount of frostiness fitting of this wonderful snowy water colored background. Congratulations on this card winning in the favorites category so many times!! Hugs to you! ~Karen.
