Simon Says....................Ice Inspiration !!!


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the  Something New Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)
We will be back soon with the name of the lucky winner of the  $50 Voucher !! :-)
This week the challenge is


The lovely Laura has made this gorgeous mood board for us to use
We are showcasing Glitter Ritz and Distress Glitter  this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used :-)
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!

I thought these gorgeous Memory Box Birch Trio and  Deer Trio,  were perfect for this Ice Inspirations challenge.  I decided to make this a circular card for a change - it didn't make live easy but then I never do!!!
I layered up the images to create some depth and wanted to use all white put found it became wishy-washy so I use background with Bazzill  Sea Glass, and used a little Copics colour with the larger trees and deer.
I used the Glitter Ritz White Opaque to cover most of the ground and images. I tried different methods of giving the look of snow falling, the one that was the most effective for my need was a clear laminate which I embossed with a  Cuttlebug  Swiss Dots - I did have to take a off center photo so the laminate didn't shine through the image.
