Delicious Doodles Challenge - Hairy Legs!! Dimensional Christmas Card

Morning folks - I can't believe that it's time for yet another Delicious Doodles Challenge and more importantly I can't believe how near to Christmas we are!I'm sure someone has stolen a few weeks from me as I'm nowhere near ready. Anyway, this was another of those challenges that when I first saw the title I thought "Eeek what am I gonna do???" For some reason I couldn't get spiders outta my mind! LOL. Anyway, I had a big think about it and decided that I'd make a Christmas card using an animal (tbh I had thought about using a fairy and telling you all a little tale about her forgetting to purchase hair removal cream, but somehow didn't think it would make the cut - lol)!!

So here's what I settled on - a basic stepper card that has mini steps. I hope you like it cos it was a devil to line up all the layers and to be honest I'm not entirely sure it was worth the effort!!

I used the fantastic A Crofters Winter as the main focus on the card. I used Prismacolor Pencils to highlight small details such as the grass and then Distress Inked the sky. The mini steps give a lot more dimension to the card than using foam pads or silicone glue which was why I persevered with the layering! I added Barn Owl & Baby Deer to the scene and again coloured them with pencils to achieve a really soft look. To finish I added loads of  Stickles to give the snow a bit of texture and sparkle.

I hope you can join us this time - remember you don't have to use a Delicious Doodles image to play. Oh and don't forget to enter the My Memories Software giveaway that I'm currently running.
