From our Family to Yours...

             Inchies, Sketch and Texture......
Here is today's card
I began by die cutting a hill die to use as my template.
I lightly brushed the upper part of the card with blue distress inks, using a moon mask 
and stamping the contemporary stitched clouds.

Still using my template I put on Snowflake paste by Finnabair to add texture to the bottom.
I added two more layers, building up the texture of the 'snow'.
I used a stencil and Sparkle medium for the spiky icicles and the shards of light 
from behind the cabins. I also thought they looked like contemporary trees?

Sparkle medium is semi-translucent and shows off the glitter beautifully.
The Snowflake paste is more of a milky white, dense and great for the texture.

One of the challenges was to use inchies or twinchies, which I had never heard of 
but I wanted to enter the challenge, so after the DT inspiration, researching and with the 
inspiration from the sketch challenge, I came up with three inchie cabins in the snow.
I really enjoyed making a mini scene within the one inch square.

I liked the clean area at the top and after several different ideas I stamped 
the sentiment directly onto the card and heat embossed in white.

I am entering the card into the following challenges
Used Inchies
and
and
To create something with lots of texture
I thought the texture of the vegetables resembled the Snowflake paste..The Snow
I was writing this post and saw the finished card under my light and thought 
it looked quite atmospheric, so took a photo to show you.
I enjoyed making this card and had fun.
