Forest friend

The weather here in Yorkshire has made me want to make something wintery.  I decided to do another distressing experiment using Aurora Reindeer from the East Wind.  She's coloured with ProMarkers and mounted onto some brown paper from Santoro Gorjuss Neutrals.

The layers underneath the image are made up from Santoro Gorjuss Neutrals, Lili of the Valley/Raspberry Road Designs - Heartfelt, Lili of the Valley Frosty Christmas and Joy Crafts Dance to Music.  Once all the layers were on the card I distressed them.

The added bead sprays and self adhesive gems in blue, brown and pearl were all from Hobby Craft.

The image is so beautiful from The East Wind that I didn't want to over embellish the card and hide her.
