There's A Chill In The Air

I've been using the fabulous Tall Conifer once again this week for 100 Proof Press to create yet another Christmas Card, however if you changed the text/sentiment it would also be perfect for a Winter birthday card.
I created my background using Distress Inks broken china and faded jeans spritzing with a little water.  I also added a fine spray of gold to give a little shimmer.
The Tall Conifers have been stamped with black archival ink and a little blue ink added to the bottom. For further interest and dimension I have added SNOW using small wooden letters coloured with broken china ink and edged with silver paint dabber. I have also included a small bird also coloured with broken china ink.
I have stamped 25 with manganese blue archival ink and again added a small wooden bird for dimension.
I have punched two snowflakes from white card, colouring with broken china and faded jeans ink, adding highlights of silver paint dabber to the edges.  A white snowflake brad has been added to the centre.

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your weekend. Tracy x x
