Leave a Trail

Good afternoon from Morgan's ArtWorld and her Design Team as we open the February challenge.

For my card, I've selected Winter 2, a big eyed curious looking little fellow. 

 With his winter jacket and scarf on and soft snow falling around him, I decided to have him gazing into the woods.  I think his facial expression shows deep thoughts. 

I pulled the Woodland scene stencil from Polkadoodles and my Distressed Oxides.   Working on mixed media paper, I created the background.  I decided on the famous sentiment from Ralph Waldo Emerson and printed it to the size needed. 

 I used Copic markers for coloring the Winter 2 image and then die cut it closely using a stitched rectangle. 

The card base is a 6" square, top fold.  I added the deep blue matting for 'night time' then added a black liner mat under the background.   Next I secured the sentiment in the top right corner and the little boy in the bottom left corner.   Lastly I used Diamond Sparkles to add the snowflakes over the entire card.

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog. I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to 'Follow' my blog and to visit my site - "Not Just Scraps' on Facebook - where you can purchase my cards.
