Let it Snow

So I'm persevering with a different style. Playing around with Hero Arts stamps and distress inks. This stamp was part of my DT pack from Simply Create (thanks Jacqui). It's called Snowy House and I love it. I coloured the snowy house with copics. The background was stamped using 'Cling Dots' with 'Faded Jeans' distress ink. And, I can't believe I actually tore a bit of paper, it's so not me!

Anyways, I'm sort of fairly pleased with it but can't help feeling it looks a bit bare and that something is missing.

I really like the way the embossed dots on the 'snow' echo the spots on the background paper - and doesn't that house look so snug and warm!

luv, Mags x
