Anna-Karin, you have created a wonderful effect in this winter scene. Beautiful!
Lovely card, Anna-Karin. The dye inks you used to color work beautifully with the inks you used for the stamping to create a wonderful winter scene. Thank you for giving so many details. Daria

When doing winter scenes, I tend to reach for my blue inks, but here I wanted to try something else. The scene is inspired by a Stampscapes idea card by Linda Selymes.
The scene is done on glossy cardstock and coloured with dye and pigment inks. The Soft Hill was stamped twice with Memento London Fog and the Pond was stamped with the same colour. I really like the way the pond looks like an ice and snow coloured collection of water. The Sedge Filler was used with London Fog to add texture to the areas that were still empty. The trees, stones, stumps and hikers were stamped with Jet Black. The scene was coloured very softly, with the inks listed below, leaving lots of areas the white of the paper. The darker inks were used very sparingly, basically only to create shadows, a border and to colour the cabin. Snow and highlights were added with a white gel pen. The branches were stamped in the foreground in both black and white and the Tall Grass were stamped with white pigment ink all over the scene to add texture, also on the sky. TFL!!
