Snow at Christmas

Good afternoon all, 
I hope your weekend has gone well and that you are now relaxing. 
I really can’t believe that we are in December already.

So the first of the month means a new Challenge over at Lavinia. 
This month of theme is 

Snow at Christmas 

Here is some inspiration for you. 

I started off by using a background from my stash. 
It is so good to be able to do this. 
Not just make the backgrounds , but actually use them. 
This one was inks and Brusho powders on the gel press plate.

Plus quite a lot of water by the looks of it. 

I added some stamping, these geese are fabulous. 

Followed by the foliage. 

Next I blended some blue ink around the edges, followed with some black ink. 

For the extra colour I use Inktense pencils and water .
Followed by some background stamping using the Christmas verse , and the a moon was added. 

Some highlights with a white Posca pen. 

Finally some chunky white embossing powder, You know how I love using this. 
Here is a closer look. 

Remember the winner is chosen at random and wins £40 voucher for Lavinia stamps. 

That would be a lovely Christmas present. 

Must go, time to walk Eric again. 
Thanks for looking in. 

Much love and hugs 
Jo xxx
