Arlene here with a sampling of three cards.
I know this is a “Winter” stamp, but I’ve never seen it as a totally WINTER stamp. I’ve always seen the bits of snow drifting down as stars seen through the barren trees, either in the early dawn when you can see the sky lightening up on the horizon or late at night when the forest seems to turn dark and haunting. I still can see the stars ahead of me guiding me out of the wilderness. Yes, that does seem strange to say about a stamp, but I have always been intrigued by what colors to use with this stamp. I believe last year, I used those wonderful neon Hero Arts inks and the skies are gorgeous with those inks, but I wanted to use the new Ombre inks by Hero Arts. AND I had to use Stickles on every card. They are my stars twinkling in the sky.
My first two cards are indeed, Fall cards for the Northern Hemisphere. I loved the Light Ruby to Royal Red of the sky. It puts me in the Autumn mood.
This second card shows a sky from butter to orange by using the Ombre ink Butter to Orange. Of course that bit of blue was NOT supposed to be there, so I caution you to thoroughly clean your stamp or you too will experience totally unexpected outcomes. However, I do like what happened and so I am showing you my OOPSS card too.
Finally, I’m going to show you the scene and sentiment in that gorgeous Ombre ink of Pool to Navy and yes, I did make this one a Holiday card to show you the versatility of this wonderful stamp. It seems to make the world a gorgeous place. And yes, I did still have some butter to orange ink at the top of the trees. I didn’t take my own advice.
Supplies: Winter Tree Scene Ombre inks of Light Ruby to Royal Red, Butter to Orange and Pool to Navy and a Hero Arts stamp from a cards set, not in production.
