Caribou Snow Globe

Well, you've had Holly Wreaths & Mistletoe Wreaths. You've had Penguin Snow Globes, now you get the Caribou Snow Globe.
This was done by spreading Silver Stencil paste onto Black card, then sprinkling with Silver Crystal Glitter while still wet.
 I've matted the image onto a silver glitter card stock, and then again onto Black.

 I was going to mount it onto a white card blank, but that just looked too stark, so instead I covered the card front with a paper featuring leaping deer & Christmas trees, which  mimicked the main image.

It's from an old 8x8 pad from Dovecraft, called Christmas Blues.
 I mounted the image onto the front, and that was when I realised a bigger card base than the 6x6 I'd used would have given me more room for a sentiment. You can see all the careful planning that goes into this, can't you? So I used a silver peel off Seasons Greetings,layered up exactly the same as the main image, and mounted at the bottom with foam pads.

Adapt as you go, that's my motto. There's usually a way round things. You've ended up with a stunning card. Doesn't matter how you arrived there, does it? Have a great week x

I love it when I find I have paper that mimics elements I've created. It's like a lucky little miracle, lol. Nice stencil work as always. xoxo
