Peaceful Snow Scene


I have posted several similar cards already, but I am really loving the look of the snowy night sky created with Color Burst and masking fluid, so I made another one. One of my favorite new Color Burst colors is the Indigo for a night sky and I add a little of the Ultramarine Blue for contrast. I have been watering down the masking fluid so I can easily flick it onto the watercolor paper with a cheap brush. I found it was too thick to flick it otherwise. After the Color Burst dried, I removed the masking fluid by just rubbing it with my finger. I tore a layer of snow and added my die cuts for a peaceful Christmas card. The tree and "peace" are both Sizzix dies (by Tim Holtz), and the dove is by Die-Versions.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes (with dies) challenge at Scrapy Land, and the Anything Goes challenges at Crafting from the Heart and Craft Your Passion, and the CAS Christmas challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

Gorgeous card! Love the background (you used my two favorite color burst combos too) and what a great way to create snow falling! I'll have to remember that! So glad you shared it with us for the Scrapy Land Challenge too.
