Double Trouble 72 - Winter Scene

Welcome to Double Trouble Challenge 72! 

Since it’s the 5th Monday in the month, this is a “Something, Anything, Everything” challenge, meaning anything goes. However, there are extra chances to be entered into the prize draw by creating something with snow and linking your project to one of our partner challenges. All details can be found on the Double Trouble Challenge Blog

I decided to create a winter scene and the best way to do that was to use a slimline card. I inked the background using Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot inks to create a night sky with a moon. I splattered some water and also used the Clear Shimmer Brush to both brighten the sky a bit and add the effect of falling snow. I used a small star stamp and white pigment ink to stamp some random stars in the sky as well. 

The images were stamped and die cut (and coloured where needed). I used an embossing pen to add some white and white glitter embossing powder to the trees and I used the Clear Shimmer Brush on the edges of the snowbanks. This took a while to complete but I an happy with the finished product. 

Come and join us at Double Trouble and show us your creations. Complete details can be found on the Double Trouble Challenge Blog

I am also entering my card into the Colour Dare challenge (#422) for a tic tac toe (left column of Blue Belle, Toffee and Sapphire plus Sage).
