a winter's sunset.......

Hi there. You might all be saying i doubt it very much that these are the colours of winter, but I saw this sunset today when I visited my friend.

All the stamps I used here are from Hobby Art scene it range. I started by stamping the house first and then built the scene around it. All stamping is in jet black archival ink. I did extend the trees on the right hand side though, with a black pen.

I used distress inks to colour sky after masking off an area for the sun. The colours are barn door, victorian velvet, wild honey, mustard seed and tumbled glass. I used the round mini blenders for this. 

Then I coloured in sun using barn door, wild honey and mustard seed. The deer and stag are painted in with a damp brush and brushed corduroy and vintage photo.
The snow is done by a makeup sponge, torn copy paper and weathered wood.
A black sharpie round all the edges and some glossy accents with iced snow sprinkled on it finish it off.

I do hope you like my make and interpretation of a winter's sky, Theresa xx

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
