Snow church

   Today we have another challenge at Eureka Stamps the theme of which is 'Baby, it's cold outside'.
   I have used digi stamp number 26801, snow church, printing it out in grey and used Promarkers to colour it, using a Sakura glaze gel pen on the church windows and a Sakura white pen on some of the snow. I also added Stickles to the mountain snow where I thought the sun might be catching it. I then used one strand of embroidery thread together with silver metallic thread to embroider the twigs on the trees. (the metallic thread doesn't show up that well in the photo). When completed I coloured some of the thread using a Promarker pen.
   I cut the finished image out leaving a thin narrow border and mattered and layered it onto black and then silver card. Using a Spellbinders floral doily accent die I cut out black card which I stuck onto white card and cut around. After attaching a silver peel off sentiment to it I fixed it to the card using foam pads.

   I wish to enter this for the following challenges:
