festive sleigh ride for creative expressions DT

well here i am again
 with another DT make for creative expressions,
 using the fab set of stamps..let it snow..
so here is my make:

i know that lots of people like to make cards
especially at this time of year
and this card could easily be made in various colours
to suit your personal taste..
i started by creating a background by clear embossing
the small bauble stamp from medallion set
which looks like snowflake to me.?!
then i covered with vintage photo distress ink
and used flick and spritz to add details
also spraying with a
pearlized spray to get some shimmer.
in the centres of the snow flakes
i added some dots of liquid pearls
were stamped onto canvas
this creates another texture on the card
a little wire to attach the sleigh to the reindeer
and a tiny bell
finally i added
let it snow sentiment
to complete the card..
hope you like it
i will be back next week with another make and a tutorial.
also look here to find links to the other Dt members and their fab makes !
have a fun and inky week
