Pyrrhula pyrrhula

Morning, all of you here and there and everywhere!

This week's Digi Doodle Shop's Best Challenge #84 we have Animals. This is to honour Pet Pardons. Remember the charity trying to find homes for animals. Trying to find people who actually care who will Pardon a Pet from death row, or a Rescue, by adopting him or her and giving them a forever home.

To join our challenges you don’t have to use a Digi Doodle Shop image, but if you do use one, your entry will count twice. You are also allowed to enter our challenge as many times as you like, as long as you enter with a new card/craft.The winner of this challenge will win a $10 give certificate from Digi Doodle Shop where you’ll be spoilt for choice.

I spent good few hours to get this card right. And as usual, loved every second of it. Tried to catch feel of the winter, cold, but also beautiful and peaceful, bright sky and definitely 3D.

Stepper card are honestly easy to make with Hougie Board!!! I love it, I absolutely love it. It's fab with inches side and when you turn it over you have cm-side. I'm so lazy crafter that measuring puts me off but with Hougie it is NICE! 

My stepper card does not follow any specific template or guide, I just thought here, and here and here... yep. Here we go. Sure now when I know what to do, it won't take me hours :D

Image is from wonderful Digi Doodle Shop and the name of the stamp is "Bluebirds". Well, now they are two nice little robins and that's it! :)

After cutting and folding I spread a little ordinary sticky glue on the steps and covered with very thin fabric. Back a bit darker and natural white in front. Tree needed some masking because the original scene is summer rather than winter. Trees on the background and in front are all masked with snow tex and blue glitter.

Barbed wire needed some snow as well. Hih, and if you try this at home, becareful with cutting wires. They could broke easily.
