Snowy Scene Tutorial

How fun - don't miss out on this week's Snowy Scene tutorial over at Stars & Stamps. Debbie did a really great job of showing us how do do this. I don't have one of those clear stamp liner-uper kind of things that is shown in the tutorial, and I don't have any clear acrylic "foilage" stamps so I had to just kind of wing it with a wood mount stamp. I found that working on a surface with a lot of graph lines on it was helpful. I had to close one eye and squint to get the stamp to line up off-center just so for the second stamping with the black ink.

Hey! I'm a Squint! If you watch the TV show Bones, you will find this as terribly funny as I just did. If not, move along. :)

Here is my little snowy scene card. I can't wait to give this another try some time. It was really very fun.

 
I used "Twilight" ink and a sentiment from the 4 My Friend CTMH set. The branch stamp is an old wood mount one by "Great Impressions."

Very nice - I think I'll try the squinty technique too since I don't have the tool for lining up stamps either!
