Winter in July! I'm in the mood for cool weather apparently since this is my second winter scene today. TFL
Here is the recipe: Center panel, started out with Whisper White CS, stamped the main tree with Handsome Hunter, heat embossed it with detail clear embossing powder. Stamped the trees in the middle ground with Always Artichoke, heat embossed them with clear EP. Stamped swirl design with versamark, heat embossed it with clear EP. Brayered over the panel with Soft Sky then Blue Bayou at the bottom and top of panel. Wiped embossed images off with a paper towel. Tore Whisper White CS for the snow at the bottom for both fronted panel and BG. The tricky part is stamping the trees on the BG so they line up. I found if I lay my front panel next to the background it makes it easier to judge where to stamp them. All the BG images and sentiment are just stamped, no embossing on Soft Sky CS. It sounds like a lot of work when you type it out, but it goes really fast.
Note: When doing any scene using the emboss resist technique work from foreground to background.
