Christmas Time at Yosemite Cabin

Crafter's Companion USA will soon be releasing more beautiful images in the Art-Kure
Collection
. Until then...here's a sneak peek:


This new image - Yosemite Cabin - is part of the New US Landmark series that's coming. I gave a go at watercoloring the image with Distress Markers. This was my first time ever to color an image like this. I wasn't really sure how it would turn out. But...I'm giving myself a pat on the back...I think it turned out pretty good. :)

I added accents of Clear Rock Candy Distress Stickles. When that dried, I flicked on some white pigment ink spray. THAT turned out really cool!


The entire piece is mounted on a sheet from a beautiful piece of designer paper from the Crafter's Companion Vintage Christmas Collection 6" x 6" Paper Pack. I trimed it down to perfectly fit on a  6" x 6" sheet of Candy Red Shimmering Cardstock. LOVE my Shimmering CS! Look at that gorgeous subtle shimmer! The entire panel is adhered to white 6" x 6"card base.


A clear button tied with red twine...a few scattered red pearls....and it's done.

Thanks for stoppin' by!

Oh Wow Lori!! I absolutely LOVE this!!! Your snowflake "flick" technique really panned out--it looks AMAZING!!! I almost picked this as my top favorite from this fabulous new collection, but I went with Yosemite Chapel I was actually one of the super lucky winners on FB so I'm even more interested in them now, as you can imagine! ;) I love your inspiration and am even more enticed to buy some of the others I love. They are really great! TFS!!
