Winter Scenic Season

I made another "Scene Silhouette" card using the set Scenic Season from Stampin' Up! I was tired of tearing paper to use for the clouds or hills background. So I used a Sharpie and drew "cloud humps" on a sheet of clear plastic I had saved from some packaging material -- possibly from a Cuttlebug embossing folder. These are great to save for a variety of tools -- even cutting them straight and using in your stamp positioner.

I started with white card stock. I sponged a variety of colors for the sky, sponged a light amount of a grayish blue for the snow at the bottom, inked up the trees with dark green, inked the snow line with the same grayish blue ink, and finally used a red marker and inked the bird. I added the sentiment at the bottom inked with black ink.

The sun is setting and it looks like it will be cold, crisp night!
