SHADOWY WINTER WOODS - November 2018


Inspired by LeeAnnGreff - YouTube "3Techniques with the Stamparatus"

Hi, Stampers!
     Here is another project from my November 10 Stamp Camp.  LeeAnn Greff has a great video on YouTube on how to create this "shadow" effect - or, as I like to call it, three-dimensional.  These subtle trees also work well for a sympathy card.  Just send me an email me for a printable Project Sheet.

Happy Stampin’!
