Winter Blessings

Hello everyone! Happy new year! I hope you get time to stamp to your heart's content this year! I certainly hope to stamp a lot more than I did last year. Stamping makes my soul so very happy, but with 2 young kids and a full time job it's hard to find time. Well, I'm going to try to stamp a bit every week! Do you have any craft resolutions for 2020?
I'm sharing 2 cards I made with my brand new stampset Snowy Pine Trees from Kitchen Sink Stamps. I just love, love, love this set, there are so many possibilities. It is so easy to create an artsy watercolor look! 
For my first card, I stamped the trees with Gina K inks on watercolor paper and created background with Taylored Expressions Blender brushes. I ran over the ink blended sky with a wet brush for the watercolor look. I also went over the trees with a wet brush to soften the colors. The sentiment is from the Winter Blessings set from Unity Stamps.
It's really rare that I have a vision for a card and it turns out exactly as I imagined in one try. The second card I'm sharing is one of those rare cards, I am so happy with the way it turned out!
It featured the same stamps, this time I used distress inks for the background and did not add water to it.
Playing along the following challenges:
Thanks so much for stopping by today, have a great rest of the week!

  10. Right now it seems like Drupal is the best blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

  19. These sites are stable, offer instant payments in your paypal and are not meant to make you fool.
    Take the time to extend your program from the starting as well as the foundation could keep on providing the company well ahead of the
    establishment phase. Unless you incorporate some technical
    exposure to web servers you might battle to perform your own server management and administrative tasks. ์†ก์†ก๋„ท
