PP274: A Theme Challenge from Claire

"Let It Snow" Theme

This card was supposed to be on my blog yesterday, but due to a very long day running errands and Christmas shopping, I had forgotten to post it before I left.

One of the very talented designers for Penny Black (Heather Telford) makes such beautiful scenes and uses masking fluid.  I finally purchased a bottle and this was my first attempt to try it.  Using a tooth brush I dipped it into the fluid and then rippled the bristles.  The "snow" is a little more fine than I had planned but I like it.  (By the way you want to do this inside a box so the fluid doesn't get all over everything.)

When the fluid was dry, I brayered the Baja Breeze ink over the white layer and then rubbed my finger over the piece to remove the masking fluid which left the fine snowy background.  The "in the winter" die is from Penny Black.  I have a set of bird dies from Memory Box and added the little red bird.  Five snowflakes from a punch were added.  This layer was added to the Baja Breeze card base and then I added Ice Stickles to the flakes and to add some "landscape" to the tree die.

Thank you for stopping by!
