Allsorts 498: Christmas Trees

It's already Saturday, time for a new theme at Allsorts challenge. This week it's all about Christmas trees. Hope you can join us!


The above card was super quick and easy to make. Washi tape was used to mask off the edges of my card front. Then I inked up the card with Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide. This ink was also used to stamp the image (Crystal Drops by Penny Black) with. Next I sprinkled some irridescent ice embossing powder over the trees and heated it up for some sparkle. The little sentiment from the Penny Black set  Holiday Snippets was stamped and heat embossed with Versafine Onyx ink and clear embossing powder. Mounted onto a white card front to finish off the card. 





This was a card I made a little while ago and never shared because I wasn't sure  I liked the inked edges on this one. But it fits this theme so well, and the cute hedgie deserves to be seen :-) Another quick card, simply stamped the image from the Penny Black set  Holly Jolly using Versafine Onyx ink, then colored with Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils. A Wink Of Stella glitter brush in gold was used to add some golden sparkle. Sentiment is from the Penny Black set Season's Gifts. Before adhering to the card base, I inked up the edges with  Forest Moss distress ink.


Please come join us this week at Allsorts challenge for a chance to win a set of  Distress crayons!
