Kraft and White Winter Scene

Hi everyone.  Several months ago a group of us did a Zoom call and we sponged white onto kraft to create some vintage-style cards.  I posted several of the cards HERE, but this one was missed ... so I'm sharing now.

This card uses a beautiful image Country Chapel (Stampscapes), which works so well with this technique.  I stamped in Archival Coffee ink (Ranger) and then sponged around the image with white pigment ink, creating sky and hills (using torn masks).  I used some diluted white acrylic paint to add more snow to the church and trees and then also splattered to create falling snow.  The sentiment (Deco Christmas -  Tim Holtz) is stamped in the same ink.

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, my word! So now I think I want to try something like this, but a reality check tells me it would never turn out so beautiful. You have the perfect sentiment font for the vintage look. This is beyond amazing, Loll!

Wow, Loll, this card is so perfectly made that it looks like a store-bought one (in a good way of course)! The way you sponged the sky and snow with white pigment ink is just amazing! So is the falling snow! And most of all, the card has a very warm feeling even though the snow in the scene is deep!
