OLW 117 SnowPosted: December 9, 2012
Susan’s challenge for One Layer Wednesday this week is to create snow on your card. My card uses my favourite method for making snow: masking fluid. I masked either side of the panel and then flicked the masking fluid onto the panel with a toothbrush. After it had dried I removed the masks and stamped the Winter Berries stamp as an overhanging branch rather than a tree. I inked it with black and red markers, stamped it once, then inked it with versamark and stamped it again before embossing with clear. For some reason a lot of the embossing powder stuck around the branches resulting in more snow than I expected from the flicked masking fluid. Not to worry; I have a berry branch in a snow storm. I replaced the masks and sponged the sky in two shades of Memento inks. I realize this is a layout and technique I have done several times before, but making it with a different stamp adds another card to my Christmas card stack.
