Snow, Pine and Mahogany . . .

. . . is the challenge at Gingersnaps Creations. As one of Decembers Visiting Artists this is my submission.

The green background is Peeled Paint distress ink, which I used bleach to stamp the snowflakes. The snow the bird is standing on tissue paper, pva glue and glitter. This is the first time I used the bird stamp, which Leslie, a friend in Chicago very kindly sent over for me.

Talking of snow, hope you are all keeping warm and well and thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.
Wishing you all a very happy Christmas and a wonderful 2011!
