Covered in Glitter!

This snowy canvas is my entry for this weeks Sunday Stamper Challenge, and I'm hoping that little bird houses count so that I can enter this in the Something Completely Different Houses Challenge as well .

I have just used gesso and aqua paint dabber on my canvas. The tree is by Collections Elements, painted in distress crackle paint, as is the fence which is one of those fab new Tim Holtz dies.
The background is stamped with pearl snowflakes and fir trees in tumbled glass and broken china distress inks. I made some clear snowflakes using some Ideology packaging and then out came the glitter. I used Deko-Ice which has lovely big clear crystals sprinkled on the snowflakes, but I did manage to get it all over the place, my desk is now more sparkly than the Strictly Come Dancing set. The little bird house is covered in some frosty coloured paper, and also given the glitter treatment, and hangs from the tree on a little silver wire with a few little crystals on it.

Such a pretty canvas and so much to look at. I love your bird house...it just completes the composition beautifully...it is perfect for today. We have not got frost but it feels like it and your canvas makes me feel frosty, but in the nicest possible way.

Hope you are well, have a nice week.
