Let It Snow

Can you believe that it's November already? That means that the new Lavinia challenge has begun and the theme for this month is 

Something a bit different from me, I haven't had my Brusho's out in ages so thought I'd have a bit of a play. 
First of all I flicked Masking fluid over my paper and left it to dry. I then stamped the Spring trees in Versamark, slightly moved my stamp and then inked and stamped it again with black Versafine, before adding clear embossing powder and heat embossing. I then stamped  the moon, masking the areas that I didn't want to add the brushos to. I added a little Purple, Turquoise and Ultramarine into separate areas of my mixing pallet then sprayed a little water into each one. At first I brushed the diluted colours randomly over the sky then sprinkled a little extra powder to add a bit of depth that I felt it needed. When the card was dry I rubbed off the masking fluid, this gives the look of lightly falling snow. 

I mounted the focal panel onto navy card, tied some bakers twine before mounting it onto my folded card.

For my second card I again flicked masking fluid over my card then stamped Zen Snowflakes randomly over my backround before using clear embosing powder and heat embossing. I then used the leftover mixed brusho , watering it down slightly and brushing it over my card. I then again gave a good sprinkle of the powders and heat dried the card. 

After removing the masking fluid I once again randomly stamped the Zen snowflakes using the Versafine, I was going to use white embossing powder over them but when I was looking through my box, (I hardly ever use embossing powder) I discovered a powder called snowflake, when heat embossed it gives a lovely white/silver/holographic  glittery effect. I stamped my words onto white card, matted it onto navy card and added it to my matted focal panel.
I love the dimention that has been achieved using the different techniques here.
