Textured Snow

Hello ladies : ) I have a card I created that reminds me of something you would see on a vintage post card.  I started with a red card base and then layered the "Swirl Cuts Background" cut from white cs on top because I thought it would be a good representation of the smoke and snow sure to be swirling when this train whizzes by!  I colored the train with my Prisma pencils and shaded with Gamsol.  Next I decided to add some texture with Snow-Tex and I really like how it turned out.   Have you ever used this product? It is water soluble and dries hard and gives a really nice texture to snow! 


I finished it off with a snippet of Holly from another stamped image and tied it in with some Baker's Twine.  So pretty and festive and yet masculine I think : )

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you are having a great weekend!

That is an awesome scene and I love the snow you added with the Snow-Tex. I had never heard of that product before but it sure makes a realistic looking snow. You did a wonderful job making this masculine card design.
