It's Merry Monday time and this week the fabulous Katie has challenged us to use polka dots and/or stripes on our cards.
For my card, I sort of used both - that's if you count the snowflakes as polka dots :)
My background was inspired by a card recently posted by Nichol Magouirk on the Simon Says Stamp blog. Once I'd masked the moon and sponged the background in various colors of Distress Inks, I over-stamped the trees with Black Soot ink before sponging white ink through a snow stencil.
The deer were silver embossed across three layers separately then married back up again. What is hard to see in the photo is that the "snow banks" are striped DSP.
Thanks for visiting. Head on over to Merry Monday to check out what the rest of the design team have been up to.
