Our Christmas Challenge for December - Let It Snow

Well I hope everyone has had a lovely Christmas. It's been a bit manic for Dave and I with an elderly relative being in hospital for a week and coming out very late on Christmas Eve. 

This months card is one that I made at my Mum in Laws request for my Step Son and his Girlfriend. I didn't think I would find the time but managed to squeeze it in, albeit at 12:30 Christmas Eve morning. It was worth the effort though as she really liked it. 

The card was made on the reverse side of Centura Pearl as it's really nice to work with when using Distress Inks. The sky was done using DI's and stencil brushes as I wanted it to be subtle,  the snowy mounds were done using the same colours and blending tools. The trees were put in using first and second generation stamping for depth and the stag and his family were stamped using Versafine Onyx Black. Finally to frame it I stamps some ivy along the top.

The card was matted and layered onto white and black card and mounted onto an white 8" x 8" card blank. The last step was to add a bit of bling using Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Pearl (although it doesn't show up in the photos very well).

I hope you like it, why not visit Lavinia Stamps website and have a go at this fabulous challenge you never know you may be a winner. For more details follow the link:
