(2017 c83) Winter Scene using I.O., Newton’s Nook, Sizzix, Darice, Avery Elle


This watercolor background was painted with Distress Inks by Ranger  diluted with water.  Next I stamped Newton’s Nook Whispering Pines with Distress Oxide Inks by Ranger  called  Iced Spruce.  The deer was cut out with Impression Obsession DIE 1 17-6 Sm Deer die.  The snowflakes from Avery Elle, Snowflakes ST-17-27 were stamped & heat embossed with white.  I spattered water on the background and then thinned white paint.   For the Topper on the frame I added a die cut by Darice, Snowflake Boarder 2014-42.  Happy Birthday is from Sizzix Celebration Words, Script.
