Simon Says - Let It Snow

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

The  challenge will run for two weeks, so you have until January 1st to join in the fun. I hope you all have a very Happy Christmas with your family and friends and that Santa will pop down your chimney with all the things on your crafting wish list.
The theme for this week is...
created a card with a Scottish Winter theme, inspired by the recent snowfall on the Cairngorm Mountains and the resident herd of Red Deer who have made their way down the mountains into the forests in search of food and shelter. I used Tim Holtz/Sizzix Pine Branches 3D Texture Fade on the background, Forest Shadows, Cool Yule and Festive Words Thinlits with colours of Distress Oxide Inks inspired by the heather that grows on the mountains. However, I have yet to see any of these magnificent creatures wearing spectacles or a scarf, just saying.
I coloured a panel of Distress Watercolor card using Shaded Lilac and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide inks.
I spritzed the back of the panel with water, placed in the Tim Holtz/Sizzix Pine Branches 3D Texture Fade, ran through my die-cutting machine and dragged the Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink pad lightly over the raised detail.
I die-cut Tim Holtz/Sizzix Forest Shadows from Distress Watercolor coloured with Twisted Citron and Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxide inks and layered across the bottom of the panel. I die-cut the deer or I should give him his correct title of stag, from Distress Watercolor card, coloured with Antique Linen, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Inks. I die-cut the moustache, nose and glasses from Black Distress HeavyStock and the scarf from Simon Says Royal Purple cardstock and added a checked pattern with a Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen.
I fixed the deer to the panel, popped up on foam squares. I die-cut the Festive Words Thinlits and snowflakes from Twig and Stump Thinlits from Simon Says Purple Cardstock and one from Distress Watercolor card, fixed in place with Distress Collage Medium. I added splatters of Dina Wakley White Gloss Spray and added Trinity Stamps Frosty Snowflakes to the centres of the die-cut snowflakes.
