Christmas in non traditional colours


Today I am back with something a little 'off season', and thinking about Christmas once again.

I love the effects that you can get by brushing over ton paper to make hills and then adding black silhouette stamps. There are so many wonderful stamps out there to enable you to do this and on these particular cards I have gone to town with the Card-io Christmas range.

I think my favourite thing is the fir trees which are so detailed, even though they are just in outline.

I used just the very top of the branches of a tree to create the bushes too - very easy and very satisfying.

I hope you enjoyed my little bit of Christmas spirit today, and thank you as always for visiting.
