Merry Monday #120

Hello Everyone!

Last week we went to a countryside and I saw the river Volga for the first time in my life. I still do not know Russia well and travel occasionally and not far from Moscow. The evening by the Volga was fantastic reminding of the Russian classical literature of the 19th century. How was life those days? Steamboats travelled the Volga, life was quite, and 150 km was a big distance...



Today finally I got time to play with my favourite challenge Merry Monday. This week Nina is the hostess and she invites to use skis, skates or sledge on a card.


Frankly speaking, that was a bit complicated. I went through my stamps and found only one set meeting this requirement - The Wonder. Here is my take on the challenge:




I stamped the image and coloured it with pencils. The sentiment is stamped in pigment ink and heat embossed with Ultra Fine powder. And to finish I used my favourite Falling Snow stencil and white embossing paste. I applied Sparkle embossing powder over the wet paste and heated it when the paste dried.



Thanks for visiting! Have a nice day!
