PTI's October Blog Hop


This month for Papertrey Ink's blog hop, we were to make a card inspired by the artwork of Adolfo Serra seen here:


I chose the little cottage in the bottom row, and used the stamp set "Winter Village"..


I set up my scene on Dark Indigo cardstock, stamping each piece with Versamark, and then heat embossing with white powder.  I stamped the cottage separately and die cut it, then set it off to the side.  I left the top snowy white instead of stamping the roof.


To make the trees multicolored, I started splattering watered-down acrylic paint in pink, yellow, aqua, white, and red before adding the house.  I added some fresh snow ink to the shoveled path.  Inside I stamped a sentiment from Winter Village, and a little navy tree and fence.  Artsy good fun!
