Deep Ocean Challenge 'Around the World'

Hey guys, today it's time for my second post over at Deep Ocean Challenge. This time the theme is 'Around the World' so theres loads of scope for individual interperatations & the design team has some FAB cards for inspiration, be sure to head over & check them out. Then don't forget to enter your wordly creations - we'd love to see what you make!
Due to the time of year (it's freezing & me not having got to grips with my festive makes yet this year, I thought I'd do a Christmas North Pole scene & this pretty little LOTV fairy stamp was just the ticket!

The papers are from last years Magnolia collection, I also made a heart tag die using a Magnolia Doo Hickey die & 2 spiral flowers using a Marriane Designs die.
Here's a closer look...
The image has been coloured with Distress Inks on Watercolour Papers & highlighted with Crystal Glamour Dust. I've used my Viva Declor Pearl Pen in Cream on the snowdrops & added Polar White Flower Soft to the snow on the ground, around the edges & elsewhere on the card.
Distress Inks:
Skin - Tattered Rose, Old Paper
Cheeks - Fired Bricks
Hair & Basket - Antique Linen, Walnut Satin
Coat & Shoes - Weathered Wood, Faded Jeans, Black Soot
Scalf & Bow - Tumbled Glass, Weathered Wood & Pumice Stone
Wings - Pumice Stone
Holly & Foliage - Shabby Shitters, Bundled Sage, Walnut Satin
Shading - Pumice Stone, Black Soot
I made 2 paper scrolls from an old book & a banner from kraft & sentiment with Studio G alphabet stamps.
Below is glass bottle with cork that I've filled with Polar White Flower Soft & tied with thread.
Dies used:
Marriane Design - Spiral Roses
