Hi everyone. I still have some cards to make but this is one more for the pot..lol. It's still Rudolph's Day...just, run by the lovely Mo and I really had to join in as it's the last one of the year. I am still loving doing a bit of tangling and I saw some Christmas designs with similar trees to this so I doodled and came up with this. The background is an embossing folder by Crafter's Companion bought at The Range recently, so this is it's first outing. I have been trying not to do snowflakes so much this year, but I do adore them and when I saw some of the designs they had at the range all featuring snowflakes, they just happened to fall into my basket..lol.
I started with the offcut of white card which I just had sitting on my table and did a washy background using Broken China, Dusty Concord and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks. I then pencilled the design and when happy I went over it with a No 3 Black Micron Pen. I added some sparkle using a Sakura silver pen on the star at the top, and also some little stars over the background, and on the circular ornamental line around the tree, highlighted the dots which is difficult to see but has a lovely sparkle. I then embossed the piece of blue card with the Touch of Winter Embossing Folder and cut it to fit a 7'' x 5'' card and added one of the sentiments from last month's Creative Stamping magazine, so this is its first inking too.
Thank you for your visit today and I hope to see you again soon.
