Quintiles - Winter Wonderland

The Alpha Tag challenge has finished over on Chocolate Baroque, so we are onto a new challenge for 2013 - Quintiles. These are pieces of artwork measuring 5" square.
The challenge for January is Winter Wonderland.

We make two Quintiles to send off and then receive two back!

My first tile was made by using Distress Stains and water for the background. I stamped the trees (Christmas Flourish) and deer (Damask Reindeer) with "glue" and then  covered with silver leaf.
Added some silver embossing powder and chunky glitter around the edge.

For this tile I made the sky with Aqua Markers - great deal at local craft shop 6 for £3.99, bought 2 packs!
I then added trees from Treescape Clear stamp set. Added some Stickles for a bit of sparkle.

Look forward to receiving my swap,

Less is More 101

Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and I wish you all a Happy New Year.
 Just time to enter one challenge before getting ready to go back to work tomorrow!
The beginning of a new year and the beginning of a new month means one thing at "Less is More" and that is a colour challenge and for this time we have chosen 
with a touch or a splash, a hint or suggestion, a dab or a  patch of 
a colour of your choice!
The idea being that the black and white are predominant and the added colour is subtle.
For this card I have used the Hat image from Chocolate Baroque's Steampunkery and the Sentiment from Steampunk Travel. I stamped with Versafine and colored in with Distress Markers.
Thanks for looking,
