Nature's Beauty

 It's such a dreary day - overcast, damp and cool.  After the rain of the last few days most of the colourful autumn leaves are on the ground, creating a curtain on sidewarlks and road ways, and clogging up storm drains  With each breeze more leaves rain down, movements that fascinate my 2 kittens watching through the back door.

You can just feel that winter is coming and in this part of the country that means snow. 

Which brings us to Christmas......

Today I pulled out "Nature's Beauty" stamp set focusing on the little bunny.  Sometimes I will do that ie. focus on one stamp and make as many different cards as I can with it. Today it was the bunny's turn.

For the first card I also pulled out the "Touch of Frost" DSP which has been carried over from last year.  One nice thing about this DSP is that there is plenty of open space in the bottom to stamp directly onto it. 

The bunny and the twigs of grass were stamped using Black Memento ink and then coloured with Watercolour pencils and a blender pen. The DSP was then added to a Seaside Spray card stock base.

To make the card look more 'wintery' I added some Dazzling Diamonds to the trees and to the shadows in the snow.

Sentiment is from Itty Bitty Christmas which is added to some Scallop Edged Purple Posy ribbon.
