Olympic Inspiration

Are you watching the Olympics?  I love watching the games and am always amazed at what the athletes can do.

This card was inspired by watching the cross county events – which are held on beautiful tree lined snow trails.  The area is so beautiful, although I doubt the athletes noticed during their competition.  I sure hope after their events they were able to take some time and enjoy the scenery!

I stamped the image, from Stampscapes, in Palette Noir.  The moon was created by punching a circle out of eclipse masking tape and placing it on the panel.  Copic markers in several shades of blue were airbrushed over the entire image.   I then removed the mask and lightly airbrushed some light blue over the moon to soften it up.

The winter words, from Stamp Zia,  were stamped on vellum and added to a white panel of Bazzil cardstock.  I wanted a clean and simple look so   the only embellishment was a  small snowflake from K & Company was added at the bottom. 

Thanks for stopping by!
