Inspiration Challenge at 'The House'

The current challenge over at The House that Stamps Built
is their Inspiration Challenge.
I thought long and hard with how I could make my card.
It certainly was challenging and after seeing the
current sketch over at Try Stampin' on Tuesday
I thought I could incorporate the 2 together.
Inspiration Photo
I know I didn't get the twine
the correct way but after I had created my
scene it just didn't look right. But I am happy
how it highlight it. I decided that since I am
entering this in another challenge I couldn't use
the option of snowflakes.
Thanks Kaylin for a great sketch challenge.
For my scene  I masked either side of my paper
and started colouring using
Tim Holtz Stormy Skies
Memento Tuxedo Black
Peanut Brittle & Dandelion
My tree is from
Repeat Impressions 2710
and was stamped a second time
for the mirror image.
Birds are also Repeat Impressions 3412
Sentiment is SU Feeling Sentimental
cut from Spellbinders Petite Ovals
and coloured with same as above.
Added a touch of Iridescent Medium
around the sun & sky and
finished with a few sequins to match.

As always it is nice to see your comments
when you pop in.

Oh boy do I see some Theresa Momber sponging. I love the dark clouds above the sunset and how the water reflects the tree image and sky colors. Perfect shading on the moon and the birds make a nice finishing touch. This is CAS at it's very best. Great take on both challenges.

Wow!! You've really outdone yourself this week Ina. This is magnificent. Love, love, love it. Great coloring on the sentiment too. As always, love to see your cards in the House That Stamps Built Challenge. Good Luck.

I saw this on the House that Stamps Built challenge, and just had to stop by to tell you what a lovely card you created - that image is wonderful!

Fabulous card! --I might be a bit partial as it is very similar to the one I made for the challenge. : )--Very pretty scene you created and I love the sponging on the sentiment oval; such a pretty touch. Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built.
