Just Add Ink #562 Inspiration

Hello there,
we had so much frost on the ground one morning this week it almost looked like snow! So is it any surprise my thought's turned to my first Christmas project for the year? The inspiration photo for this week's new challenge from Just Add Ink may have also given me a push in that direction ;) Here's the inspiration picture, this week suggested by yours truly.

Now you do not need to go with the Christmas theme, but please use the colours, patterns, or objects you find in the inspiration photo to feature in and inspire your project. Here's how mine turned out. 

I'm not ready to retire last years Gnome for the Holidays set - they are just too cute! So I stamped my gnome, and his house (I did have to free draw a mushroom top to his little tree home) coloured it all up with my Blends. Die cut some trees and a little slope of snow and put it all together to create my Christmas scene. Given the inspiration photo featured a lot of white, I kept my background white but added the corrugated embossing that helped echo the pattern of the stair railing in the inspiration photo. I added Christmas sparkle with shimmery crystal effects, sequins and wink of Stella!

The Just Add Ink DT have lots of fabulous projects to show you so please go check them out and then join in the challenge.
