Here is my card for you.

I loved bringing this gorgeous image to life, and it was so lovely that the image I got to use was you!  Smiles.

It’s kept clean and simple because I wanted the image to have centre stage.

I really hope you have an amazing day Irene.

Oh Christmas Tree Oh Christmas Tree!

I absolutely adore these Christmas Trees from Amy Doodle Stamp!!

They are so very brilliant to bring to life!

Just look at what I created with them.  Smiles.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

First I coloured in the night sky with my Copics (I did this first to avoid any transference of colour from the greens on trees.)

Then I coloured my trees and shaded in the snow.

Then I added lots and lots and lots!! Of my lovely Frantage powders!  Big smiles.

Honestly I cannot tell you all how very proud of this I feel!

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

It’s Clean And Simple yet elegant too!

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

This is my night sky – please excuse the blurry picture my Camera kept having some kind of hissy fit that day. This was the third try.  Laughing.

(I took a risk with these colours because I wasn’t sure what shades to put together to create the night sky I wanted. I am – thankfully- very happy with the final colour and will use these again.)

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

These colours are my trees.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

And these are my snow shadows.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

I wish you could feel the texture of this and see that sparkle.

It really is something spectacular.  Like nothing I have ever created before.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

I printed the trees onto Neenah card stock, then once I had finished my Frantage with my heat gun I layered onto plain black card.

This was then stuck onto A4 White Hammer Card which I made into a 6inch square card base.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

The sentiment is written with my Copic Glitter Pen.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

And this is the finished result!

Honestly I almost didn’t give this one away I love it so much.  Smiling.

I hope that you all have a fabulous Christmas and I wish you all a truly wonderful 2015.

Hugs n Happy Crafting Everyone!
