Snowy SprucePosted: November 22, 2012
There is no sign of snow around here yet which is making life much simpler, especially as I am going places with a one year old at present. But of course in the card making world there is plenty of snow! My favourite method for creating falling snow on a card is to use masking fluid. To create this scene I stamped and embossed the tree first and then flicked masking fluid over the whole panel with a tooth brush. Once it dried I positioned my hill mask and sponged the sky with Memento summer sky ink. I repositioned the mask three times to create the snow drifts. If you haven’t used masking fluid before I have a tutorial here.
