Silent Night

I hope you are having a great day...

Just sharing something I played with yesterday. Still felling a little blah so I pulled out this card from my scrap pile that had the trees stamped across the front. I decided to use a little white crayon resist on the tree branches.

Sorry about the color. I took the pictures 3 times and it still looked like this. My lights must have been at the wrong angle. Anyways...
I sponged the background using 4 different Ranger Distress Inks. (Faded Jeans, Broken China, Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters)
The sky was the most fun as I added snow using my gel pen.
The trees (Hero Arts) and sentiment (Hero Arts - Silent Night) were stamped using Versafine Vintage Sepia. I added color to the tree trunk with my colored pencils.
So simple and easy. Felt like I should have mounted the picture but I was using it as an entry into the Hero Arts Blog challenge which was simple holiday cards.
Thanks for stopping by... Have a wonderful day!


  1. such a beautiful card Sue, so tranquille!

  2. Very very pretty! I have been playing with my old stamp piles lately too!

  3. Love the look you got from this one Suzz. Crayon resist is such an easy technique - I keep forgetting to do it, but you certainly made it work well for you.

  4. It looks wonderful to me, it really has that magicla effect with the crayon technique you used, brilliant look on the trees!

  5. I LOVE everything about this Suzz. It's spectacular!

  6. beautiful and serene scene, Suzanne! I love crayon resist and your results are amazing!

  7. This is such a beautiful card- love the crayon resist. You have created such a pretty, peaceful scene!!

  8. Fabuloso trabajo, como siempre me dejas con la boca abierta, la escena es tan real que parece un cuadro, precioso.

  9. I like the color resist that creates the snow on your branches. Great winter scene.
