Winter's eve

My daughter gave me some of the Spectrum noir sparkle markers for Christmas and when I saw this blue I knew I had to try a night time winter scene.

I first started by only coloring the part of the sky that I needed on my background, only use papers and whatever product for your background that you will have showing, I think it helps to adhere the next layer easier also.
Then cut the hills and trees using the Elizabeth craft designs, Outdoor edges dies, as you can see I used the front of the die for the back pieces and the ones on the lower hill I just turned the die around and used the backside so the trees are a little more scattered.

I added snow to my background and trees after I colored them with a white marker. I also added some snow gifted to me from a fellow cardmaker. Then I added the little bunnies from the Impression Obsession Rabbit set dies.  They blended in a little touch much in the white snow so I cut them from gray card stock and added a little gray shading with ink.

I hope you enjoyed my little scene today and have fun creating one of your own.
