Snowy Sympathy Card

The current DRS Designs Challenge is all about the Weather Outside.  I needed a Sympathy card so I thought it would be nice to do a peaceful snowy scene with a little sunset. 
 
 

The Snow Tree with Fence image worked perfectly - all I had to do was color the tree and fence posts with some colored pencil and sponge on a bit of orange and blue.  Then I flecked some Snowtex mixed with acrylic paint to make some snow (I mix acrylic paint with my Snowtex because my Snowtex is dried up - the paint revives it).  I added the Brush in Deepest Sympathy greeting. 

Hope your weekend was wonderful.  Mine as super busy as we did a big 80th Birthday party for my Mom.  She loved it!

Many hugz!
