For this week's Inspiration Challenge, Stacy has chosen an amazing site. I stopped and read so many interesting articles. And wow, the photos, I have run out of adjectives!
I hope you can find the photo of the fox, the rabbit and the eagle, it's amazing!
For my card, I lost the photo! I can't find it again. I have searched for a very long time but cannot find it. But if you look at the 2019 Audobon Photography Awards page not only will you see phenomenal photography but many of the winter photos inspired me. I also found THIS one which depicts a winter day in MN. Brrrr.
I had a lot of fun creating my winter scene. I added a light pink to the snow then stamped the forest trees then added pink and blue for the sky. I wanted the trees to have a snowy look so applied paint to the stamp and swished it with my finger. It was not as wintry as I wanted so I added more directly to the trees with my fingers.

So pretty, Angie. Such a beautiful scene and it makes me feel cooler just looking at it (and it is hot, hot, hot here). If you look closely at the picture you linked to, you have to wonder if that is Santa's brother (yes, I have had too much coffee this morning....lol). Wonderful done. Hugz

Beautiful, Angie, and soooooooo cold looking. I think I'll come and look at this today when I go outside and get HOT. Maybe it would cool me down. It looks like a misty morning in your forest. I love your inspiration, also.
