Snowy Trees


I've been playing with my Distress Inks and Inkylicious duster brushes to make this card for this week's CAS(E) This Sketch challenge:


I dusted Faded Jeans onto the card, then stamped the tree three times with Pine Needles without re-inking, then flicked some water onto the card and blotted it with a tissue, which lifted the colour so that it looks like it's snowing.

Speaking of snow, Susan's One Layer Wednesday challenge is still open, so I'll link it to that as well.

All stamps are by Penny Black.
