Christmas trees

Hi everyone.  Today I have a quick post with a CAS Christmas card.  I used a piece of smooshed Lindy magicals from my stash for the background.  Tore a piece of white card to create my snowhill, and used two trees (also from my stash) that I had made with alcohol inks on acetate; diecutting from Fir Trees (Impression Obsession).  To finish, I stamped a sentiment from Love Bug Christmas (Unity) using Peacock Feathers distress ink that matches the colour of the sky pretty well.

Close-up ...
I'm sending this card over to a few Christmas challenges.

Such a pretty background from those glorious magicals and what fabulous glossy trees. A great idea to use the acetate and the alcohol inks for the trees Loll x.

hello mf. So sorry I haven't been over for a visit. I am feeling pretty overwhelmed with all I am doing these days. My 5 littles keep me hopping too.
I hope you are doing well in your part of Canada. I'm sure you know how poorly we are doing here in Ontario. ugh. My hubby and I did get our first shot of Pfizer the other day and now we wait for 4 months to get the next one.
Anyways....beautiful card. I just can't wrap my head around making any holiday cards right now. Good on you though!!
take care, blessings,
xx Karen

How peaceful is your winter scene. I love the blue of the sky and the color of sentiment. I'm still learning from you that sentiment doesn't have to be black

Oh! The glossy trees against the shimmery background -- divine! Can't beat the colors or the combination of techniques. Love!

You created a lovely winter scene, Loll! I can imagine the pretty shimmer of the Magical blue sky, and I LOVE the AI-on-acetate trees! Their colors, visual texture, and shine are so beautiful! Great color match of the sentiment and the sky!
