Winter Days

The new Mixed Media World Challenge #10 showcases some beautiful colors all in grays, blues and browns.  This is what our winter looks like and had me think of wintry days where the sun doesn't shine and the sky is overcast.
I took the colors and smeared them on the craft mat with water and dragged watercolor paper through the ink to pick up a soft watery background.  Then I stamped over with the PaperArtsy set of the music, branches and bird using Pumice Stone dye ink.  I shaded the bird with watercolor pencils.

The sentiment is from Verses Rubber Stamps and I added a layer of Mica flakes form Stampendous.

The lovely color inspiration: 

Happy New Year's Eve!



  1. Ah what a lovely sentiment and gorgeous card! I was just looking at a card of yours on Pinterest where you used pp for the sky (looked like snowflakes) and created a beautiful winter scene with tress and birds!

  2. Beautiful and I love the stamp sentiment, too.

  3. Quite simply stunning Suzanne! I love that delicate tree branch. Happy New Year! Jenny x
