Double D Challenge - Winter Snow Scene

I know that this is a busy week for you all, but relax and sit down and make a winter scene for our challenge at Double D. 
Here is some inspiration for you. 

The Prize

My card
This is a 5X5 square card with an envelope made from Scrapbook paper. I stenciled the background with green ink and then used the snow stencil. When it was dried, I added the cardinal image. 
I placed the snow stencil on top of the cardinal and stenciled again with Texture paste.

Altenew - A Year in Review Challenge 2023

A Year in Review Inspiration Challenge December 2023

I am always intrigued and inspired by flowers and that is what I chose for my focal image on this card. 

I am using a stamp set that I purchased this year from Simon Says Stamptember, a collaboration with Altenew. It is called Rose Reverie. 

Not many supplies for this card, just the Rose Reverie image and sentiment. I used my water coloring paints from Daniel Smith and a die from the Greetery called Nordic Frame. 

After water coloring the roses, I did the background with a blue wash and then used a stencil that I created to make some interesting areas. The addition of some clear gems from my stash completed the card.  I have a hard time with splatter I think too much, but it is done.
