Simon Says - Stitch It

Hi Everyone...welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. Thank you for joining us for last week's challenge and we hope you can join us this week too because

and the theme for this week is...
I used Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Flurries Layering Stencil, Tim Holtz/Sizzix Tall Pines and Scribbly Snowflakes Thinlits, Distress Mica Stains and Snowfall Grit Paste to create this winter card and added gold thread stitching to the snowflakes and bottom of the card.

I began with an A2 panel of Distress Watercolor and applied Distress Snowfall Grit Paste through Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Flurries Layering Stencil. Once the Grit Paste was dry, I spritzed the panel lightly with water, sprayed with Frosted Juniper, Snow Flurries and Hocus Pocus Distress Mica Stain and let the colours blend and do their own thing. I spritzed kitchen roll with water and dabbed the snowflakes to remove some of the colour.
I applied a thin layer of Distress Snowfall Grit Paste to a scrap of Distress Watercolor card and once it was dry, die-cut with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Tall Pines Thinlits. I die-cut Tall Pines again twice from Distress Watercolor card and layered to create dimension.
I fixed the Tall Pines die-cut to the panel with Distress Collage Medium and added a few Tim Holtz/Sizzix Scribbly Snowflakes die-cut from the left over Snowfall Grit Paste card.
I used Tim Holtz Craft Pick to add holes around the snowflakes and hand stitched using Gold Sparkle Metallic thread.
I machine stitched across the bottom of the panel using the same thread.
I trimmed the panel to be slightly smaller than A2 and matted on to a white card blank covered with Idea-ology Gold Metallic KraftStock.
I added Idea-ology White Christmas Remnant Rubs
I added another Remnant Rub to Black Alcohol Ink Cardstock, trimmed and fixed to the panel on foam adhesive to create dimension
