Silhouette scene

Good morning blogging friends, I hope your
Saturday is going well so far!
I have another 'Less is More' card to share
with you today. It's a recipe this week and...
 I pondered for a while, then looked at my
 stamps......then pondered some more!!!
Then realised my new stamps I was looking
 at would be ideal.....phew!

I painted a little watercolour scene then 
stamped my images.Panic then ensued as
 I realised the images were just too light.
These stamps are meant to be used as
 watercolour type images I think.

So a bit of Promarking ( hmm is that even
 a word) and they looked a lot better. I added
a few footprints in the snow and a sentiment.

I added a bit of 'snow' too,alas the 'snow' stamp
didn't look right at all.Neither did the white spray
I had just bought!!! Drat......then I tried using my 
white (very juicy) ink pad and a cocktail stick
and it looked ok.
A touch of glitter for the snowdrifts worked well
I think.  I still wasn't sure at all about the card, almost went in the 'round' file.
However later when I saw it from a distance I 
thought maybe it looked ok. So  here it can
 decide ;) I may be back with another soon though !

Enjoy your weekend/week whatever you have
 planned ;)
