Walking in a Winter Wonderland - CAS(E) this Sketch #97

Hey, I'm back with one more quick post tonight!  This time I'm playing along with CAS(E) this Sketch #97.  Here's the sketch provided by Sam Simpson.

Here's what I created.

I've been using my distress inks more and more lately.  I love creating scenes and these inks blend so well...perfect for the look I wanted to create.

I die cut the birch trees from a die by Taylored Expressions, then masked off the two sides to create a narrow scene down the center of the card.  Three shades of ink were sponged over the die cut negative spaces to create the sky.  After removing the birch tree die cut piece and masking...there was my sky!  It's always fun to lift away a piece of masking, to see how the inked areas turned out.

To finish the card, I stamped a sentiment in black ink then stamped 3 little Cardinals on the tree branches.   Done!

Thanks for taking a look!
