I'm a life-long resident of Upstate New York and absolutely know about the winter season and especially Christmas time. Skies are dark and dramatic which is what prompted this card design. I smooshed Distress Oxides onto watercolor paper to begin my card background.
I always love where a design takes me. You can actually see a hill in the background which was completely random. I'm totally happy with the sentiment ink as I didn't want it to be loud and bold. This is a quiet wood scene such as we'd find along a snowmobile trail. I did splatter with silver acrylic paint. Super happy with this card.
