This weekend I came back to it and finished it off quickly, and more to my liking! It pays to put things aside sometimes and just return to them later...that's how I approach my house cleaning! tee hee... No really, ask my husband!
The snowy hills were inspired by many of the techniques I've seen over at Mel's blog...you could spend hours over there, warning!!
And then, because something was missing and felt unfinished, I tried Peet's technique of hand stitching...so I first poked holes where I wanted them along the snowy hills and then came back in and stitched. It's slow going but I sat with the family as we watched TV so it was time well spent.
Lastly, I punched vellum snowflakes to make this card work for the OCC sketch challenge. Did you know that stickles makes vellum curl up on itself, immediately?! I pressed them out and let them dry...until I put a dot of glue on these little flakes and boom! They curled up again on me so I carefully peeled them apart and weighted them down to dry.
Stamp used from The Angel Company...and it's only available until the end of the month.
We had our first snow of the year...so pretty and perfect for decorating the Christmas tree. Last year we didn't have snow until late Feburary...what does that bode for this winter?!
