Snowy Peace Card


I am loving the look of snow created with flicks of masking fluid on watercolor paper before creating a background with B/B/or CB. In this case, I used mostly the new color of Color Burst called Indigo which is a dark blue with a little of the lighter blue Color Burst too. After the Color Burst was dry, I rubbed off the masking fluid dots and it looks like falling snow in a night sky. I cut out the trees (Penny Black), the deer (from Memory Box) and the "peace" (from Ellen Hutson) and the result is a lovely card which I am teaching this month in my classes.

I am entering this card in the die crazy challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and the pigment powders challenge at Paper Artsy.
