A Winter's Day

A little creative play yesterday using Large Tree Skeleton and Snowflake, Leafy for 100 Proof Press.
My background is created with Distress Ink broken china which I then spritzed with water to give the feeling of snow falling.  I added the snowflakes stamped in manganese blue Archival Ink. Added my Skeleton Tree, adding a little shading to the bottom of the tree again with Distress Ink.
I have added a snowflake from Tim's Idea-ology range to give a little dimension and the sentiment Let it Snow, I did not want to over embellish as I think the tree and scene say it all.

There is also a perpetual contest Press It Out taking place at 100 Proof Press and the grand prize is an amazing $100 with 1st place $75 and 2nd place $50. All the prizes are awarded in rubber, mounted or unmounted. The winners will be chosen twice a year, once on 30th June and again on 31st December.
