Hello Friends

I wanted to make a card for this month's Craft Stamper Take It Make It  Challenge. I love this challenge it always pushes me in to making something I would never normally make. This month  you have to use a non Christmas stamp to make a Christmas themed image.

 I had to really go through my stamps and have a good think about this one. I finally came across this flower stamp. I thought it would make a good tree. I started off with some watercolour paper. Then I cut out a triangle stencil and  stamped over the triangle with the flowers using Versamark ink. I then heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  Next I  got out my distress inks and went to work.

 I LOVE purple and I don't use it nearly enough so I went with that and and turquoise. I mashed about 4 different distress inks together to create these colours. Once the ink was dry I sprayed it with water and let the water marks dry in naturally to create that snowy effect behind the tree.  I then mounted it on to some silver glitter card  a white card base. I added some gems in the middle of each flower to create tree lights. Finally I used the same inks on to the sentiment and stamped it underneath.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you like my card :)
