Mountain Ash - Berries and Snowflakes

I've been meaning to use this image ( Mountain Ash) for ages and had it all coloured up. I added lots of glitter to the berries and then wanted it to really "shine" so I added Glossy Accents on top of the glitter but only on alternate berries and left it to dry. Then I added it to the rest of the berries, and that way the Glossy Accents stayed looking like berries and didn't run into one big "pool".

The snowflakes are from a Tonic Studio Multi Detail Punch and I've used 2 layers and added Stickles all round the edges. In the centre I drew a little berry and gave it the same "treatment" as the berries in the image.

You can see the effect in more detail in the close up below.
