The weekly countdown is really short now for using Tim's techniques from his book. Can't believe we're on week 27; Distress Misting Masks, which can be found on page 60. This is a technique I do quite often...saves on layers of paper, especially if your card might need extra postage due to thickness or weight.
The snowman and snowflake (Tim's Winter Wonder die) were cut from chipboard that had been painted with Claudine's Canvas White and Traditional Tan paints. They got a misting of Pearl PP with just a fine mist of the blue mix at the left edge give the appearance of a shadow. Let dry, then coated the snowflake with Diamond Stickles. Frosty's scarf was turquoise and white but I darkened it with Stormy Sky and Faded Jeans DIs.
'Snow' looked kind of blah left just as a mask so I offset the mask letters and it brought everything together. A bit of Weathered Wood and Faded Jeans DIs around the edges completed my wintry tag.
We got 5" of fluffy white snow today so I guess you know where I got my inspiration.
