Winter Woods

I have tweaked and rephotographed this card a couple of times, it was one of those that just didn't sit right with me and I had to fiddle.  And, I'm glad I did because I love how it eventually turned out.

Originalloy, I coloured Winter Woods from Whimsy Stamps (which is back in stock) with copic markers, keeping the trees in pale reddish hues and I like it.  Till I put it all together with the pale wood effect background and nope, it just looked lost.  So, I hit it with darker copics and added a snow storm with a white gel pen and YES!!  So much better now.

Copics used

Snow: BG72, BG10, BG0000
Foliage: BG99, G29, G20
Trees: Originally E77, 34, 30 then added E29, 25, 23

I die cut a frame using the Rounded Rectangles Die set  and popped the image behind the frame.  I added a sentiment from my most very favouritest Christmas stamp set of all Holiday Mini Sentiments, then finished off with a few snowflakes, some bling and some twine.
