Let it Snow

It looks like all the challenges are going with an Ice or Snow theme at the moment, gearing up for a White Christmas! It definitely isn't snowing here, but it's not too hot either - actually it's a perfect late Spring day today.

This card almost ended up in the rubbish as I wasn't to happy with it, but then I spritzed a bit and let it dry and decided it would do!

I began by masking the background with some die cut trees and the slope and then stamped the trees and santa is his sleigh. then I sponged the background. Using a brush and water I softened the trees and then as I said, I spritzed it all with water.
I think it looks quite misty. Can you see the subtle white trees in the background? To finish I added the deer die cut, stamped the sentiment splattered some white paint and mounted it on a dark blue base card.

I am entering the following challenges.

Craft Stamper Take it, Make it - Snow & Ice theme
Simon Monday Challenge - Let there be Snow
City Crafter - Christmas Things that Float or Fly

CAS Mix it Up Challenge - Stamping+Sponging+ one other (paint )
