You're probably wondering why I didn't create a winter scene with these beautiful sets......the thing I love most about Our Daily Bread designs stamps is that they are ALL so versatile and I absolutely LOVE to get the most out of my stamps by creating projects which are "out of the box". I think it is so fun to use stamps for purposes other than which they were originally designed. I used a total of six stamp sets and one background.....listed below:
The outside circle lines on the ornaments, the Birch Background, and the pinecone from Sacred Season were all heat embossed with Pewter embossing powder to match the pewter frame which I purchased from Target several years ago on clearance. The three bird ornaments images were stamped, the inner circles cut by hand, then sponged and colored with markers to create one continual scene. The tree images from Quote Collection 1 and Bookmarks-Trees were inked with markers and stamped over the sponged areas to create a distant scene.
