A Winter's Peace

I am using the Prickley Pear's new Bare Branch tree on this card. First of all, I ripped a piece of cardstock to be double the width of my card.  Then I layed it over the 4" x 5 1/4" white cardstock.  I stamped the tree once, then with out re-inking the stamp, I stamped the tree again.  I repeated this to have a row of trees that had the effect of distance.  The trees were stamped while the ripped paper is on the cardstock, so that it masks the bottom of the trees.  Then I sponged with the weathered wood Distress ink over the ripped edge.  I move the ripped paper mask down and over about 1" and repeated the sponging with the Distress Ink until I reached the bottom of the card.  Then I sponge the sky with the Stormy Sky Distress Ink.  I stamped the small cardinal from the CLR027B Winter Scallop Oval Stamp Set in one of the trees and colored it with Copic Marker R46.  Then I stamped the sentiment from the CLR019A Victorian Ornament 2 Clear Set onto a strip of white cardstock and matted it with navy cardstock.  Add some glitter to the trees and the layered snow and some silver pearls to the sentiment strip.  Be sure to check out the PPRS blog for more inspiration from the Design Team!
