Happy Saturday, folks! Thanks so much for sticking with me, even though I've been bizzy and haven't been posting much. I did manage to get some fabulous teacher gifts finished (no pics, it was too late!) and now I'm on to some other gifty things. Hopefully I will get them finished in time to photograph them and show them off.
I have to say that this sketch had me stumped for a few minutes! Those circles threw me for a loop. I knew I wanted to use my Deck the Hall set from The Cats Pajamas, so I worked around the large tree image. Here's my card:
TCP Tuesday challenge, which is to use any of the tree images. I stamped the tree image in Brilliance Graphite Black twice on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, then colored one image with Copics. I cut out the tree, then popped it up on top of the non-colored image, adding some Liquid Applique snow. I also added the sentiment to the top right...it seemed to fit perfectly!
To create the background, I stamped the three snowflakes from the same set in Versamark ink on So Saffron cardstock, then embossed the images with clear detail embossing powder. Then I sponged the edges with Saffron, Marigold Morning, and Pumpkin Pie ink. To finish off the card, I added some layers and ribbon, as well as Primas and a button for my circles. I am happy with how this turned out!
