Winter Wishes

*This post is part of the December promotion fortnight. Remember to leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway.*
Good morning, here's the first of my samples for December..........
I love this Zen Leaf stamp by Lavinia Stamps.
I cut a circle out of acetate & sponged Adirondack Sunshine Yellow ink through it, using very little ink & only applying it in certain areas, to get a patchy effect.
 I used torn paper & Distress inks - Weathered Wood & Pumice Stone - to create the hills.

I stamped the tree with Onyx Black Versafine ink & heat set with WOW Clear Gloss embossing powder. The Winter Wishes greeting is from the Woodware Clear Magic Forest set of clear stamps. That was also stamped with Versafine & heat set with clear EP.
I used watercolour pencils to colour the leaves.
To finish, I applied embossing ink through the Imagination Crafts Snowflakes stencil & heat set with WOW Clear Sparkle embossing powder.

For matting & layering I used Core'dinations card on a C6 top folding card.
