There's Snow On The Hills.

It's flippin hot ! In my crafty cabin it's reading 30 deg and what am I doing? Playing at making snow lol!
After yesterday's playing with masking fluid, I thought I'd try another LIM card, this time using the masking fluid for the reason I bought it, creating snow! 
I didn't go as heavy with the colour as perhaps I should have so the snow flurries aren't quite as pronounced as perhaps they should be but I can see me using this technique lots for this Christmas. 



Looking at the photo, maybe the stickles are still a little damp.



I'm going to have a look through my stamps to see what else I could use to create a snowy scene!



I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
CASOS12, Christmas in July,
CWWC48, Christmas in July,
TCC178, Shaped,
CHNC133, Trees,
LIM128, One layer, shaped.

Thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x

Hi Julie! Wow this is so striking. I've never used the masking fluid so I'm not really sure what you've done, but regardless your snow drifts look perfect with that pretty tree stamp. Thanks so much for visiting my blog and becoming a follower. I've returned the favor. :-) Hugs!
