O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree

A quick blog entry as a break from Christmas card production!  Here is one of my creations.  The tree is coloured with promarkers and glitter dusted around the edges.  I added ribbon and a little fringing.  The multi-coloured background is created by blowing some ink around on some gloss card.  I discovered I like the results better if I add the colours separately, letting one dry before adding another colour.

Striped paper:  Ribbon Stripes from a digikit by Pink Petticoat
Christmas tree: 'TALL 'N' SKINNY' POM POM TREES digistamp by Pink Petticoat
Punched border: Fiskars Apron Lace border punch
Ribbons: from stash
Colouring: promarkers - leaf green, lilac, cool grey1
Round embellishments: Chocolate Box Candy by Craftwork Cards
Shaped card: Top Notch card pack by Craftwork Cards
