Let it Snow!!

Hi everyone, it is Timi here today with a card that features the Snowman Girl digi stamp. I am going to show you how I created the winter background and the double masking for some extra dimension.

Here is the card

and this is how I created it:

Take one sheet of patterned paper, a piece of white card and the image printed twice.

Layer the white card and the image. Glue them together with some removable adhesive. Cut out the other image and place it on the top of the first one with some removable adhesive.

Take a long piece of scrap paper and cut a wave in it, just like it was a hill. Secure it down on the bottom of the image with some washi tape.

Now start inking with distress inks. I used two different colours. Make sure that these colours coordinate with the colours on the patterned paper.

To add more interest to the background, sprinkle water on the layers of paper. Leave it stand for a moment, give a little time to the ink to react to the water. Dry it with a heat tool. Add some white splashes too.

The only reason for the double masking is to add more texture. We don't mask out anything with the middle layer. It is just a frame-like feature to the image.And this way it is a lot easier to match the snowy hill effect.

The next step is to assemble the card; glue the layers together with permanent glue and add some embellishments.

Last step is to remove the mask over the image and colour the image in with some markers.

I hope you liked this short tutorial and how the card turned out in the end.

Happy Crafting,
