In Memory

Today I am joining several crafters for a blog hop to support a fellow crafter and former team mate (The Rainbow Card Challenge) who has lost her brother, Bill, to esophageal cancer.  The color of esophageal cancer awareness is periwinkle, so we based our hop on that color.  Thanks to Mynn Kitchen for putting this hop together.

Periwinkle has always been one of my favorite colors, but when it came to picking a color to put down on paper, it was harder than I realized.
I started with hand cutting a shoreline mask.  From there I sponged in some sky and then stamped he distant tree line and did mirror image stamping for the reflection on the frozen pond.  I stamped the tree in the foreground in a darker grey and then added detail to the ground around it with Copics.  I also added detail to the shoreline with Copics and added a touch of periwinkle on the icy pond for the shoreline shadows.
I did go at this project with some inspiration.  I used the photo below (from Pinterest) as my jumping off point.

Product details are below.  
Here are the hop participants~
