Created Byhand Challenge - Pattern Paper

The challenge over at Created Byhand is to used pattern paper somewhere in our creation. For this ATC I used it for the background. I lightly brushed some white gesso around the edges, stamped the bird image (Quietfire Design) with Archival ink jet black, brushed gesso a little more heavily where I wanted the snow to be, let it dry, added Golden's light molding paste for snow, sprinkled fine glitter over the molding paste, stamped "Snow!" (Quietfire Design) on vellum with Stazon stone gray, tore it out and added to atc with double stick tape, added "snow" to the letters with the Inkssential white pen and also used the pen to add an eye to the bird, wrote "Let it" with a Tombow grey marker, punched snowflake (Martha Stewart) from same printed paper as background but flipped the paper so the other side showed and added it to the atc with a silver brad, cut a hat from paper and added shadowing with a marker.

If there is righteousness in the heart,
There will be beauty in the character.
If there is beauty in the character,
There will be harmony in the home.
If there is harmony in the home,
There will be order in the nation.
If there is order in the nation,
There will be peace in the world.
So let it be.
