watery Winter...

and
and


As readers of my blog know my granddaughter’s name is Winter!
When I saw this set of digital stamps from Graciellie I had to have them.
I printed the verse on water color paper then embossed the trees from an old Hero Arts set with Versamark ink and white embossing powder (emboss resist and stamping).
I did the water coloring with Distress stormy sky and chipped sapphire ink (watercoloring).
To finish I applied it to a white linen base card.

A beautiful card, and congratulations on your win over at CAS mix up - are those trees by any chance from a set of grass stamps, as i think i have them, and would never have thought to have used them like this. Amazing!
Blessings
