Have you ever changed your mind on a card, one, two, three or even four times?
Well that is what I did on this card. First I had white trees, then green trees, then green and white trees and then these trees.
The first three just didn't get it, but I really like how these trees turned out. I used green card stock, went over the branches with a Signo Broad White pen and then color the entire tree with Picket Fence Distress Ink. (It is great stuff)
Have you ever used a Liquid Applique Pen? How fun it is. It poofs up when heated with a heat gun and gives the appearance of fur, snow or where ever you want to have some dimension. I used it as the snow drifts and fur on the boy's hat and collar. You must let it dry before touching it, or it "deflates".
The Belleek Inspired Technique was used for the snow background. You can read how I did it here! I like how the dark blue background makes the snow pop! Dimensionals made everything stand out and not lay flat. The sled die was cut 3 times for the different colors and appliqued.
