I've been wanting to try a masking technique to make a snowy scene, and this was my chance. So I tore a piece of thin cardstock and placed it about 2/3 up my panel, then sponged on some blue and purple distress inks, also masking off my moon with a die-cut circle. Then I removed my mask and moved it a little further down the page and stamped 2 trees (Hero Arts Classic Evergreen) and used some tumbled glass distress ink to make some shadows. I continued down the card with my mask, adding shadows, and finished with a fully stamped tree and my sentiment from Avery Elle's Let It Snow. Then I taped my Falling Snow stencil over the panel and added some Texture paste. And when that was dry I attached my panel to a white card base and added a couple punched snowflakes (Wplus9's Seasonal Sentiments die).
I think I have lots of room for improvement with this technique, but for a first try, I'm pleased with the results - and I have another Christmas card ready!
