Muse Christmas Vision #58

Hi Everyone,

I am back to stimulate you to pull out your Christmas supplies and play with us at the Muse Christmas Vision!

I played around here, trying to create a winter scene. Started with heat embossing the pine trees in the left bottom corner and then took the same stamp and stamped it in black - I think i spritzed it with water to get a more solid impression. I did some generational stamping an spritzing. Added some light purple and loosely colored in the  background I wanted a foggy feel to this and I think I succeeded.


Lastly I added the deer die cuts (IO) and did some white outlines on the adults. Added the sentiment (STAMPlorations)

EDITED for more clarification:
I first heat embossed the tree in white at the bottom left corner. I then took the same stamp and stamped it in black. I did generational stamping, so the trees become grey with repeated stamping, which creates depth.  But I also think you could do the white embossing last - I don't think it matters.
The white heat embossed ink resists the black - if there is some stuck to it you can just wipe it off with a damp cloth​.

So, there are so many ways to CASE this - I am sure you'll find your own unique one! 

Hope to see you at MCV!

Succeeded!!!...how about surpassed all expectations. Wonderful background, misty, cold morning while those deer forage for food. This is absolutely gorgeous. The tinge of color in the frosty sky is the perfect touch to complete this woodland scene.

Sharon Hemmingsen said...

Your card is stunning. I love black and white it is so classy, I am confused though. You said you heat embossed the left corner which is white then stamped the black. Did you mask the white to keep the black off of it? Thanks

This is amazing - so original. I love the colours you've used. I'd never have chosen those colours for a Christmas card but they look wonderful. Thanks for playing along at CAS-ual Fridays!
