Winter Dreams --- for Lavinia World Challenges

Another Thursday, another Lavinia World Challenge.  I hope you are enjoying them as much as I am! I love the stamps and other products found in the Lavinia World Store, and I am in awe of the talent of those that link up for our challenges. 

It is the heart of winter here in Northwest Wisconsin.  Some of our coldest nights happen in January.  This gorgeous wolf, Maka, is howling at the winter moon, perhaps dreaming of the warmer weather to come.  Or, maybe like me, Maka enjoys the winter months?

Lavinia Stamps have such beautiful impressions, and Maka is no exception. I just loved the way this stamped on to this heavily inked background.  Maka was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

The background was created with various Tim Holtz distress inks and Spectrum Noir Harmony ink pads (all water reactive).  The 'Dream' die cut is from Cottage Cutz, cut out of silver foil paper. The layered snow drifts were created free hand.

I hope you link up at this Lavinia World Challenge. There is one $15 gift certificate awarded each challenge and some Designer Choice awards.  You can also add your entries in the Anything Lavinia Facebook Group if you don't have a blog.  Join us there! 

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
Everybody Art Challenge -- Winter Landscape
Artsy Stamper Challenge -- Baby, It's Cold Outside 
Dare 2 Be Artzy Challenge -- Winter
D.L. art -- January Linky Party
