Please pop by the challenge blog to see what our lovely guest Jarle and the DT have made :-)

For the background I used Falling Stars Stencil, I sprayed the back with photo adhesive and then fixed to the watercolor paper, I then used Distress Resist Spray to spritz through the stencil. Some did leak through but as this is an 'artsy' kinda project I loved this more 'snowy' look. When it was dry I used Peacock Feathers, Dusty Concord and Stormy Sky Distress Oxide inks to color the sky.




I then used a  Stitches Layering Stencils  and White Embossing Paste to add some 'stars' and texture, I then splattered with inks.


 I used a Tim Holtz Winter Wonderland Deer,  Holiday Words and Atomic Elements Die Sets  for the focal points. I used an older distressed stripes embossing folder (similar to this Tim Holtz one on the snow drift, then gently dabbed it into a FABULOUS Glue Sponge so that only the raised edges were sticky and then sprinkled with Prisma Glitter 




and I finished the inside 





and made an envelope to match 






So now it's YOUR turn!
