OLW68 - Get triangular ....

... this week's One Layer Wednesday - OLW68 is being hosted by Susan at Simplicity.  Susan has set us the task of using triangles in our cards.  They can be actual triangles or simply implied! 

I decided to use this as an opportunity to make another Christmas card for my 2011 Collection and have used a "triangular" Christmas tree for the focal image. 


I stamped the image in Tuxedo Black and coloured with three shades of red Promarkers.  And, as it's a Christmas card, I've added lots of sparkle too.  Simple, pretty - I really like this one!

Stamps:  Holly Ivy Mix - Chocolate Baroque; Stampin' Up! - Contempo Christmas
Inks:  Memento - Tuxedo Black
Promarkers:  Poppy, Lipstick Red, Cocktail Pink, Chestnut, Terracotta, Warm Grey 1
Accessories:  Card and glitter from stash

I'm so pleased to be indoors at the moment - it's blowing a gale outside!  It's not raining - although I don't think it'll be long before it starts - but the wind is howling around the house - I'm sure my decorators are pleased they completed the outside yesterday when it was reasonably warm, dry and wind free!  That's all for now - I'm off to get dinner sorted out and then this evening I plan to play in my craft room for a while.

Super interpretation of the triangular theme. I love Christmas tree images & Chocolate Baroque have some absolutely super ones. This is one of my favourites. I love the way you've used reds to colour it - lovely monochrome theme too.
We've howling winds here too & already have rain. I've rearranged my craft room/studio so I now face the woodland & I love the scenery. Yesterday we had Red Kites whirling above us.

What a lovely idea to do your tree in reds Deborah. Just the right amount of Christmas glitz too!
