Welcome to my second blog post for DT.  The sponsor this week is the Stitchy Bear and I did it Creations Crafting Boutique and the theme is Winter Animals.

For this challenge I coloured the image with copics and then distressed with a silver brilliance ink pad after die cutting the image with a nestilbilities die.  I then sprayed with clear varnish.  When dry I added stickles to create snow effect.

The papers were from Quitoxic Paperie and Crafters Companion.  The embossed cardstock was some I was given by a DT member.  I used a Marianne die to cut the trees and then added stickles.

I embellished with ribbon, flower (to which I added a snowflake which was cut with a Marianne die) and pearls.

Hope you like, thank you for looking and please pop over and see the other DT samples.

Many thanks, best wishes
