Winter Wings

Winter Wings is a card inspired by some of the creative work by Theresa Momber. I created this card for a challenge at Gina K's Stamp TV website. I recently started posting on Gina K's site and I discovered a wonderful opportunity to participate in some fun challenges. This is the site if you are interested in joining in on the fun!

Measurements and Supplies
Focal Image: Gina K Designs "Winter Wings" Illustrator Asela Hopkins, Inspiration: Theresa Momber
Background Image: Gina K Designs "Tree Silhouettes"
Pure Luxury Cardstock:
Black Onyx: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 in
Moonlit Fog: 5 1/4 in x 4 in
Pure White and Black Onyx cut with Nestabilities die Label 11
Forest Branches embossing folder
Memento London Fog Inkpad
Adhesive of choice
Glue of choice

Background was sponged with Memento Ink "London Fog"

Snow line masked and sponged with Memento Ink "London Fog" Trees were inked with London Fog. I added some shadows to the trees with Copic marker C3.

The Layer of Moonlit Fog was embossed with "Forest Branches" and muted with Memento ink "London Fog". .

Focal imaged stamped with Memento "London Fog".

Imaged was colored with Copic Markers C6, C4, C2 and C0 After uploading the picture, I discovered the eye was too light. I have since, darkened the eye with C6and it looks much better. I cut the focal image out with a pair of sharp scissors.

I applied craft glue to the back of the focal image and allowed it to dry in order to add strength to the image.

I muted 2 brads with Copic Marker C6 and assembled the card.

I hope you enjoyed this as much as I enjoyed creating the card. Thank you for taking the time to look at my site.
