Winter Colours from Gez..

This week some of the Design Team have been sharing their winter colour theme projects with you and today it's my turn!

There's something about winter that I love... long snowy walks with the children for one, then getting home and making hot chocolate for everyone and drying out our socks over the fire.. sounds nice until it happens and then you realise you have forgotten just how much the cold stings your hands and how much the little ones moan the moment they get home... aw, well..!!

Here's my sneak peak I shared the other day on my blog.. I had great fun colouring the mini holly leaves and berries from the Mini Bells and Holly set with Distress Inks.. I liked how the inks soaked in really well and went lighter as they dried.. then the fun bit! Adding some Rock Candy Distress Stickles..

 ..another sneak peak..

I had a feeling the chipboard holly would work well with this image
and I think I was right! I just LOVE this card, it sums up wintertime to me!
my finished card..

HERE is the set from Tando Creative that I used on my card..
 see HERE for a list of stockists

I hope you are having a lovely weekend wherever you are, keep warm.

Happy creating, Gez oxoxo
