I loved the glow behind the winter scene in this image here here, and one of my favorite styles of cards to make is a scene with masking, and sponging and splattering. Penny Black has so many stamps that work well for this and the work and tutorials of Heather Telford and Michelle Jordain have been another great source of inspiration for me. I thank them for sharing their talents!
Going section by section I masked the snow drifts, sponged the shadows, the lamp glow, and the sky and then stamped my silhouette stamps and sentiment. Then I splattered with white acrylic paint and sponged around the edges for more definition. So fun, more of these scenes to come!

This is outstanding, Maura. I have that On The Town set of PB stamps but I've never managed to make a card with them that looks this good! Your sky, sponged snowdrifts, the falling snow; everything is just beautiful!

So very beautiful!!! I lived in Kansas as a girl and I remember my mom getting me up in the middle of the night to go walking in the snow. Snow makes a beautiful sound! This made me think of that happy memory.
