Allsorts Challenge #655/6

Good morning everyone,

It's Saturday so it's time for another weekly Allsorts Challenge. This week Lolo has chosen the theme and it is

Anything Winter

Due to the Christmas break this will be a two week challenge and the last challenge for 2021 - due to the New Year the challenge will close at 12 noon (GMT) on Thursday 30 December  and the winner will be announced later that day. We will be back with the first challenge of next year on Saturday 1 January 2022. 😀

This week we have A whopping THREE great prizes on offer … in no particular order:

1. Tonic Studios - Autumn Dream die set

2. Bee Crafty - BEAUtanicals Wildflower 3 stamp

3. Ruth Hamilton Design - 3 images of the winner’s choice.

Here's my card for this week.

I actually made this card about a month ago in my first flush of enthusiasm for Lavinia stamps, before the Christmas panic set in!! I created my hills and moon with home made paper masks (before my Lavinia acetate masks arrived!) and blending distress oxide inks. I then stamped my trees and border branches, embossing  some of my branches with white detail EP, and highlighted the scene with my trusty Sakura sparkle pen.

Stamps: Lavinia Small Fairy Fir Tree 2, Fir Cone Branch, Fern Branch, Stars 1 Mini; sentiment - Stampendous;
Media: Tim Holtz Distress oxide inks (Chipped Sapphire, Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass); Versafine Clair (Twilight), Versamark, Heat It Up Detail White embossing powder.

Love the frosty scene you created with these gorgeous stamps! The Sakura sparkle pen adds such a great detail to the card!
I'm trying to resist the acetate masks at this time but they surely would be a wonderful addition. My torn paper masks don't always turn out the way I want them to!

Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year!

I love the wonderful scene you have created, Pauline.

It's good to see you back in 'blogland', and I love the change in your style too.

That Fir Cone stamp is gorgeous, and I LOVE the way you have used it in different ways in this and the previous cards.
