Circular Scene

Another Christmas card using my Mum's Marianne village dies, but this time I've added in some Memory Box deer too.
 The snowy sky was done by sponging white acrylic paint through an Imagination Crafts stencil with Cut 'n' Dry foam.  The glitter card for the foreground was made by brayering Imagination Crafts Sparkle Medium in Diamond onto white card.  It's really easy and doesn't use much medium, this was the first time I'd tried it, and it's a technique I'll definitely be using again.  The camera hasn't picked up the sparkle, it looks so pretty and glittery in reality, and it doesn't shed either.  Just one word of warning, make sure your craft mat is clean, mine still has a little Mustard Seed Distress Ink on it from another project and I managed to get some on my brayer, and, well, nobody wants yellow snow........
