Snowy Scene Tutorial

Three trees in snow tutorial Heather Telford

So here is a new tutorial! Thanks for waiting patiently for it. I guess I really should do more so the whole process becomes embedded in my brain! I apologize for the length of this one; you can fast forward if you like; it seems to go on and on! I hope it is helpful particularly in showing the masking fluid technique.  I have made quite a few masking fluid resist cards lately as I love the falling snow effect which I will post them on the blog during the week ahead.

Below is a a close-up of the white flecks left on the card after the masking fluid is removed.

Stamps:  Before the Snow,  A Wish for Peace (PB)
Inks: Memento Summer Sky, Danube Blue, Northern Pine (Tsukineko)
Also: Winsor & Newton masking fluid

    Thank you very much, Heather!! The tutorial answered lots of my questions – especially your great tips for stamping the trees more than once and filling in some green with a sponge – I’d been having a lot of trouble getting good tree images when I tried the masking fluid technique. I’ll look forward to your next tutorial!
