3 Trees and a Winner

First, congratulations to EFY as the winner of the Kaiser rhinestones. I don't see your email so you have 48 hours to contact me or I'll draw another winner.
Have you ever seen tiny little landscape paintings on items like buttons? I was priviledged enough to get to watch artists paint them once at Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri. I was fascinated because I am a BIG painter (wall murals and large canvas). I am also a BIG stamper and I feel cramped in tiny spaces. As a stretch for myself, I wanted to make a tiny little scene using these gorgeous little trees from FireCracker Designs by Pamela.

I stamped the trees and colored them with Copics. I sponged Sage Shadow almost to the line of the trees. And finally I added some Blue Bayou sponging just on the outside edge of the sky. A frame, ribbon, DP, embossing and an icicle border finished this piece.

Stamps: FireCracker Designs by Pamela Duck the Halls
Paper: Blue Bayou, Sage Shadow, Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly DP, GP 110
Ink: Soft Sage, Blue Bayou, Momento Tuxedo Black

Adorable! Love all the swirls and the icicles. The way you colored the little trees is beautiful:)

Even though the scene is small, the feel of the card is large. Maybe the dynamic swirls are making it feel that way.

I discovered your blog during the Snowman March and cannot wait until I have a little more time to enjoy your previous posts.
