DV #145 Winter Animals

Our challenge at Dream Valley today is Winter Animals.

145 Winter Animals

I went for a slightly obvious ‘Winter’ animal with a gorgeous Deer stamp from Chocolate Baroque. I stamped it in Archival Watering Can, and embossed with clear powder. I then inked around it with Broken China, Picked Rapsberry and Squeezed Lemonade DIs, using stencil brushes from Clarity.

When that was all done I put the whole thing through a lovely freebie embossing folder that came with a magazine last year.

I picked out the large snowflakes, small snowflakes and dots, on the embossed areas and glittered them. The oval I also glittered but with a glitter that has a sort of tinsel flake in it.

Then I matted onto rainbow mirri card, and onto a scalloped card blank.
