I started by flicking masking fluid over the white card to create the snowy background and when dry masked off the lower half of the card and the moon to brayer the sky. I wasn't too happy with the result so out came the sponges and with a bit of dabbling I achieved the result I was looking for.. I moved the mask around to make snow humps and used the same pink and bluey grey as the sky to highlight them. I stamped all the images in black and added a large star and a few smaller ones using a Sakura Clear Star pen. These are showing as black dots in the photo but in real time they look quite pretty! I also added some "snow" on the trees using a Sakura white pen. When thoroughly dry the masking fluid was gently rubbed off to reveal the snowflakes.
