S&S Midweek Challenge

Today we are making cards with a Christmas/Winter theme. I recently purchased this Memory Box stamp called "Winter Collage" and this is the first card I've created with it. The dotted DP is by Graphic45, green CS Bazzill, I used colored pencils for the branches, leaves, and bird, and chalked the entire stamp to match the green in the paper with chalk by Inkadinkado. The word 'Winter" was left unchalked to make it stand out.

Oh this is so very pretty. I love how you accented the sentiment by not chalking it. Very good idea. I'll have to keep that one in mind. Enjoy your week.

Oh, that's so very pretty!! I'm with Donna about how clever you were to accent the word by NOT chalking it. I usually do the opposite and chalk the accent word, but your way was lovely. Thanks for the inspiration!
