Snowflakes are falling!!!

hey there bloggers,
Well hope you are having happy healthy well!!!I am feeling be it like a nurse at the moment, although not that I can take credit for being at all skilled, as they are! so crafting has been sporadic and on the hoof, but here is my frosty offering today!
Started with the background in two halves, what a shocker!!!..the left hand side was made by using DI, overstamping with script stamp(Tim),then when dry smooshing some picket fence crackle paint, thicker at top and thinner down to none at bottom, leave for the paint to do it's magic!!!
The right hand side was distressed using tumbled glass and stormy skies, then I stamped a chocolate baroque snowflake, when dry I added some cosmic shimmer White drawing ink and some more pearl glitter, thanks again mum!!

The trees are Tim pine tree die cuts, inked, painted and then some pearl glitter added, for that frosty feel..The snowflakes are done in the same way.The number 25, was inked and then crackle accents added, this tiny nozzle is great for accurate application! Ooh err very technical!

Anyway, I am pleased with this frosty, snowy offering!let me know what you think!
