Winter Dawn on a Summer's Day

Hello everyone, I have a project to share today using another of this month's individual lady stamps, Winter Dawn.

It seems strange to be creating such a Wintery card when the weather is so hot, but that is the nature of card making! I chose a palette of blue, lilac and a hint of icy green to create the background for my card.

I stamped the image onto smooth watercolour card, and masked it before colouring the background using the acrylic block technique. (I also used a bit of masking fluid on the little dots, to keep them covered while I was colouring the background.) I used a large glass mat, which enabled me to cover the background all in one go, rather than having to repeat the process for different parts of the background. I then stamped over the top of the background with Distress Inks, using a stamp from the Abstract Fragment stamp set. I added some partial stamping using a stamp from the Decorative Edges stamp set by stamping with Versamark and Wow white embossing powder.

I removed the mask and masking fluid, and coloured the image using Polychromos pencils. I edged the background with Distress Ink to add a bit of shading. I added some flat-backed gems and some ribbon, before attaching the background to a white card blank.

Thanks for stopping by, xx

A real stunner & so evocative of wintery early mornings - the background itself makes me think of crackling ice & that hazy wintery light in the sky. The way your 'bubbly' elements in the background echo the pink bubbles of the image as well as the polka dot ribbon is so effective & a masterful piece of designing. The glow of the aqua gems on the snowflakes is very striking & shows how just a touch of embellishing can add so much, I'm also struck by how the hint of warmth in the turquoise/aqua colour lifts the design.
