I thought I had lost my mojo but I got up today wanting to make a card. I took a look at the inspiration challenge on Splitcoaststampers and away to the craft room I headed. The inspiration came from a web site/online store called Magpie. This is my inspiration.
I love the birch tree images but didn't have one of those stamps so I just decided to make my own.
I cut white cardstock for the trees and did some markings on the tree with my Copic. My friend, Davi at Alstroemeria's Artistry uses modeling paste on some of her cards and I always love what she does with it so I smeared some on my trees for texture. I really do like it and will use it more. I found mine at Hobby Lobby.
The branches were cut from a Memory Box woodland branch die. I only used small bits of it. As you can see, the snow in the woods has been travelled quite well by the deer and animals. Plus, some snow fell off the trees onto my deer. The deer was a partial stamp that had two more deer but it was too large and I colored, cut out, and attached only one. Of course, there had to be a little bird in the tree.
