One Layer Wednesday #121 (Snowy Day) Again

This is the second idea I had for Susan’s One Layer Wednesday at Simplicity … this time I answered Susan’s question (sort of) … what do you like to do on a snowy day.  Remember the bit in ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ (James Stewart, Donna Reed, 1946) when George has been rescued by Clarence and he’s running down the Main Street in Bedford Falls and sliding along the snow (cause he’s so happy!) … here’s my interpretation!  You have seen ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ haven’t you?  I’ve seen it lots just the once!  I took the jolly colours for the scarves from the Cake Wrecks Sweet Sundays pictures Susan highlighted.


This little robin (snow sliding and spraying flakes of snow and ice behind him of course!) came as a freebie stamp sometime in the dim and distant past and this is the first time I’ve used it.  I stamped it a lot, watercoloured the fun loving flock (is that the collective noun for a group of robins?) and gave them each a different coloured scarf, as inspired by the stockings on the cake.  There’s a hint of icy blue under their feet for the snow and lots of snowy white space!

I’m off for a browse around blogworld … thanks so much for popping in, especially so if you’ve had chance to leave a comment below … Anita 🙂

Supplies:  Cardstock: Crafter’s Companion,  Stamp: Freebie,  Ink: Stazon,  Colours: Marvy le Plume

    Perfectly spaced, perfectly stamped, perfectly colored, perfect design….and a PERFECT example of clean & simple. Love the glorious white space! Stamping on watercolor paper is not easy! Not a smidge of stray ink anywhere! Well done 🙂

    Love it – so cute and a great take on the inspiration. I love that you and I chose the same two cakes and came up with different cards – that’s the fun of these kinds of challenges!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate it!
