Hello everyone and happy new year to you!!!
Today it's not just the start of the new year but the start of a new challenge at the Country View Challenges called: Landscape or Cityscape. As you see, I made a card with a wintry cityscape or rather a townscape.
To make this card, I cut out a rectangle and coloured them with Ranger Distress inks.
Then with the snowflake background die I created a snowfall on my card. For this, I used the Winder Wonderland Sizzix Thinlits die.
Then I adhered this on a white card base with glue.
From white cardstock, I cut out the houses with the Sizzix Townscape die and the snowdrift with the Sizzix Home For The Holidays Thinlits die.
I arranged them on the card, I took a photo that I used when I attached them to the card permanently.
I put a layer of DecoArt Snow-tex on the snowdrift but you can use Ranger Grittpaste as well.
I adhered grey cardstock pieces behind the houses with glue and from the same grey cardstock I cut out the birds using the Sizzix Scarecrow die set.
I inked the edges of the houses with Antique Linen and with Gathered Twigs the card edges.
I spattered the whole card with white acrylic paint.

Sizzix On-The-Edge die, Townscape by Tim Holtz
