Stampin' Up! Card

This is a card i made up for a workshop i held in February. I used my brayer to create the sunbeam using 2 different colours of ink.

First I stamped my tree so i knew where approximately i'd like my sunbeam to go. Next I tore a piece of scrap paper and layed it across the card where i wanted the snow and ground to be. Then i inked my brayer with a lighter blue and brayered the card working from the edges toward the center (as to not create hard lines). Next i used the darker blue ink and brayered the edges of the card. The i used a sponge dauber and inked a bit across the torn piece of paper showing my ground line or horizon. I used my white gel pen on the tree and then glittered it up a bit with stickles to make it look like snow. Stamped my sentiment and voila!
