For this Christmas card I created the background panel with Distress Inks in two shades of blue and a fair bit of water as I wanted it to be pale - I also ran the distressing tool around the edge to give it a distressed look. Then I stamped the fir branch in two shades of green and clear embossed them. I then inked the top part of the stamp with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder to represent the snow. I stamped two ornaments on scrap that I'd coloured with Gelatos and fussy cut them - mounted them with foam tape and drew in a thread. To finish the card I stamped on the sentiment and added some glitter glue to the branches and a gem to the ornaments. I am posting to Stamplorations July challenge - Stamps and Distressing, also to July Rudolph Days challenge - Anything Goes and to Simon Says Wednesday challenge - Sparkle and Shine. Thanks for taking a peek.
