Splatter Snowy Background
- Place a piece of dark blue cardstock in the Splatter Cubby.
- Apply a small amount of white Gesso paint to an old toothbrush.
- Use your finger to flick the paint on the cardstock. Continue the process until you are happy with the snowy coverage.
- Allow the snow to dry and then attach the layer to the card base using double stick tape.
The Die Cut Silhouette Scene
- Cut all the images using white cardstock.
- Apply mounting tape all the way around the back of the frame.
- Cut the snow layer to fit behind the oval and attach to the lower portion of the frame.
- Apply double stick tape to the back of the snow layer and then attach the whole frame to the blue card base.
- Tuck the deer in behind the snow layer and attach to the card base using pieces of mounting tape.
- Tuck the greenery in behind the frame and snow layer and attach using glossy accents.
- Finish by attaching one small bird to the sky area using a piece of mounting tape.
I hope you enjoyed seeing this clean and simple splatter snowy background card. Creating the splatter background is so fast and easy and I love how it creates the appearance of a soft falling snow. I think the all white images are so pretty against the dark blue. The splatter snow would also be pretty done against a soft blue background for a day time scene. I would recommend using more paint on the brush to create larger splatters so it would show up well against the lighter blue. Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.
