Snowy Nights



Hi there, it’s Elizabeth here with a snowy project using a mixture of stamps along with the newly released Clumber Park A6 stamp set.




IMGP0002 (179)


Using a 7″x4″ piece of watercolour card I roughly created a backdrop for my stamps using Banana Custard and Burning Bonfire for the sky and Aladdin and Sleeping Beauty for the hills. The paints water down beautifully to use as a watercolour, and don’t loose any of their depth of colour or sheen with the metallics.

Then using a scrap piece of torn card as a guide I began to build my scene up, firstly with the small Reed stamp and and then using the Tree from the Clumber Park set, to create tree’s, shrubs and foliage.

Then I discovered the bare branches stamp on the Nature I stamp set, it matches in beautifully in with the Clumber Park set.  A winter scene needs a little snow, so with a fine tipped applicator on my FlitterGlu I added squiggles in ramdon places, and then sprinkled irredescent ultra fine glitter over the top.

I was going to create a background using paint, but this 12″x12″ sheet of Mixed Media Paper from the Flights of Fancy cardstack was just the right colour for my scene, all it needed was a light wash of GeeSsoGood, followed by a little splatter, for extra snow.

The I remebered I had a stamp set with small Deer on it. Looks Like Rain Deer has lots of great images that also match in with Clumber Park, so I couldn’t resist adding these two little fella’s.

I also found this piece of white snowy netting that was left over from a project years ago, we all have scraps in our stash.

So there you have it, a snowy night in the hills. I hope I’ve inspired you to try your paints out on watercolour card, I’m sure you will love the results.


Have fun
