Decorating the tree



Hi everyone and I hope you've had a good weekend. A card to share today with two gorgeous Tilda's, 'Jingle Jangle Tilda' and 'Tilda with two little gifts' from The Christmas Story Collection 2012. I also stamped the Christmas tree from the 2008 Christmas in two colours of permanent ink, brown for the base and olive for the branches. Everything is coloured with distress ink and watercolour markers and I've added the gorgeous Merry Christmas sentiment. I used the DooHickey poinsettia die for the flowers and the mistletoe for the leaves then faux stitched and stamped around the edges of the panel and mounted onto red and green card. To decorate the tree I added lots of little gems in various sizes and some stickles.

I'm entering my card into the challenge at Magnolia down under which is 'Christmas' and the challenge at It's a Magnolia Challenge which is create a Christmas card.

Back soon :)

An absolutely stunning card Chris! Your colouring is always so perfect, love the way you have coloured the tree, it looks so real and the Tilda's are coloured so beautifully. Your faux stitching had me fooled, thought it was real and the poinsetta's are a wow factor on this stunning card. Hugs, Anne x
