Cozy Lumberjack Holiday

I think this is my favorite The Heart Desires Challenge pic yet!  This round you're able to use the colors, creatures (including MANimals) and/or the sketch.  I used all three!  A record!

I inked up the Carta Bella plaid stencil (swoon!) with 3 shades of Distress Ink.  I didn't mask, just let the ink fly.  Love the somewhat rough effect.  The trees I also inked up with Distress Ink as well as some Hero Arts Unicorn pigment ink for a snowy peak effect.  Did you notice the one leaning tree? Timber!  The little man and stump are inked with Copics.  OMG, so cute!

Btw, these and other of my favorite Distress Inks are now available in The Heart Desires Store.  Woo hoo!

I'm entering this in Virginia's View #25 Stripes and Plaid
