Lavinia Expects Some Snow!

It's time for the new challenge at Lavinia today, and the theme this time is 

I got out my masking fluid, flicked it over my card and waited for it to dry. I then stamped my Spring trees, dobbing some masking fluid over the edges of branches to look like snow was settling.(Dobbing really is a technical term ;)) After the fluid had dried, I inked my background before rubbing off the now rubbery fluid, leaving the white of the cardstock showing through. The sentiment is from seasonal words set. 

The masking fluid came out again for my second card.I stamped my background using various trees and added snowflakes to my card base before adding my fussy cut cat to my window frame.

A sprinkling of glitter was added to both cards!

I'm using these cards for the following challenges:-
CSD, Winter,
CCC101, Cold Outside,
CM, Embossing,
HJCC, Embossing.

Thanks for stopping by,

These are both gorgeous Julie! Love the images, colour combo - the deep blue/grey tones look fantastic against the white with the silhouette stamps, wonderful designs and the dobbing is so effective!
