Snowy Background with Digital DT Judy

Hi All! I am here today to bring you another way to do a snowy background! I started with a glossy paper used with alcohol inks. For this project I used Sail Boat Blue and Cloudy Blue.  

I squeezed some onto a felt blender pad and blotted.

Next I took Liquitex Titanium White Ink and Stickles Ice and combined the two.

Using an old paintbrush I tapped on the paintbrush spraying the glossy paper. The reason for adding the Stickles is that it gives it a little extra sparkle.  One small note of caution, when using this flicking technique, the ink does tend to fly a bit, so just be aware it can get a bit messy.Here you have the snowy background.

From here I used Stitched Scallop Dies and the Tree Border Die from Fall Border Die Set  Once I cut these layers I used the same tapping the paintbrush on them to add a bit of the white flecks as well. From there I used  Santa, the present stack and sentiment from Nice List Stamp Set and colored up the images with Copics. As a final touch I used the largest die in Fancy Frame Dies to cut my edge.

And here is my final project.

 I do hope that you give this technique a try and would love to see what you come up with so please post to the CDD facebook group!
