Hi well as usual I seem to be playing catch up…. I hadn’t actually forgotten about the challenge persay… but I hadn’t really come up with something for the challenge itself as December has been a bit demanding not just getting ready for Christmas….
I knew I still had to do it so I thought I would create a simple card for the challenge which I created yesterday and here is the link for the original blog post http://www.artelements.net/december-theme-challenge-white/
So here goes…
I love the sheer brilliant whiteness of snow and the stark white with dots of colour in the landscape its just a joy to see….

Frosty/snowy mornings walking the dog was always horrible thinking I needed to take him out but then loved it when I walked the woods with him he always loved bouncing through it.
Sadly Monty left us back in May…
Being mainly white and short legged… Ha ha!! it used to be fun seeing him in the snow…
So I’ve taken inspiration from this and the snowy covered trees to create some simple winter inspired cards…
I used my inktense blocks watercolours as a background then stamped with the trees and added glitter
Here I used the inktense watercolours used die cut snowflakes and added glitter for some sparkle.
Keeping it simple I think made it quick, easy and also effective…and if you need to make a lot of them easy to reproduce in a production line like scenerio…..
I will take some new photos in daylight so they will be a truer colour.
Here are a few other snippets of various different cards and jewellery past and present using white….

Christmas cards this year
These were also simple to create I used some drawn tree designs from Rag Tag Blog with added tree stamp and glitter cutout dies.
