Christmas Trees

While its great to have a specific style, its good to be versatile too. I didn’t do a lot of my usual things (break up the scene into pieces and make the sky blue) but I still like it. I’ve learned by trying and that’s what it’s all about!

This was created for Beate’s Weekend Sketch Challenge #65.

To make: I cut a mask from scrap paper using my wavy ruler as a guide. I used the mask to mark off the “ground” area. I stamped the snowflakes in the sky area using my Versamark pad. I embossed with clear detail embossing powder and my heat gun. Next sponged River Rock near the “ground” and roughly 1/3 the way up the “sky”. Kiwi Kiss was sponged in the middle of the “sky”. Finally, Old Olive was sponged at the top 1/3 of the “sky”. I then wiped the embossed areas off with a sponge. I also embossed and sponged a scrap of Very Vanilla to use in the snowflake. Next I stamped the trees. I colored in the stars and stems of the trees using Copics.

On a scrap of GP 110 white cardstock I stamped some extra trees. I colored them my usual way with Copics and Prismacolor pencils and cut them out.

The large circle was embossed using my snowflake embossing folder and then sponged with River Rock.

I sponged all the edges of the card base, the circle, and the DP with Old Olive. And it was on to final assembly to finish.
