Less is More SnowPosted: December 11, 2011
This week the challenge on the Less is More blog is a One Layer Card featuring snow. I love doing snow scenes and have been looking for a window of opportunity to do one or two.
I started by masking the top and bottom of the card base to leave a panel where I could brayer the sky. I also added a moon mask. To create falling snow I flicked masking fluid all over the card base and let it dry. I then brayered Taken with Teal ink over the panel, working from right to left so it would be lighter around the moon. After I removed the masks I used a wavy hill mask to sponge in some snow drifts and stamp some clumps of trees.
Still nowhere near this amount of snow around here, but there are two weeks before Christmas so it could still be white. Thanks for dropping in, I hope you have a great week.
