Merry Christmas

I looked back through the the past sketches at 52 (Christmas) Card Throwdown and selected the July 2016 Sketch for my inspiration.  I had stamped and embossed this Christmas tree last weekend with my friend Vikki's stamp and love how it turned out and fitted quite nicely with the sketch. Then I created a round mask and sponged Distress Ink for the night time sky, and stamped on a couple of trees to create a small scene.   Attached my panel to a metallic blue layer, added a glittery star and gel pen twinkles, and a touch of white gel pen snow, then finished off with a stamp embossed sentiment. I am also posting my card to Shopping Our Stash week 275 - the theme is Three Trees and my card sits nicely with this challenge.  Thanks for taking a peek

SOS275 - Three Trees



  1. Hi Robyn, I notice you have three new cards up, but in separate posts. It is so easy to miss all but the last one, which is a real shame. Might be better to put them into one post.

    This is a lovely card. Sue

  2. Oh this is a super take on the sketch!. Such a pretty winter scene and that big Christmas tree is just fab! Thanks so much for playing along with 52CCT this week! Deborah, DT.

  3. This really is a beauty Robyn. What super design work too. Barbxx

  4. What a gorgeous scene, Robyn--love this!

  5. Such a stunning card! I love the effect you have created on the tree. Thanks for joining us at 52CCT, April x

  6. Lovely Winter scene, beautiful colors and I love the effect of the distant trees and all the golden details.
    Thank you for sharing at SHOPPING OUR STASH, hope you play often.
