I decided to stick with a tree as the focal image and had fun playing with my Dylusions stamps and inks. I was showing Kat how to use Dylusion inks last week and had some pieces of watercolour card ready with shades of green. I cut a panel to fit the front of the card and added some background detail with various stencils and inks. I defined some of the images with a black Sharpie and white Signo. I stamped the sentiment directly on the card and coloured in the open sentiment with a Copic marker. I didn't want to hide the lovely background so I made the vertical strip with some snowflake embossed vellum. I stamped the tree on a scrap of paper, cut it out and adhered it flat to the front of the card. On the inside I cut another panel of watercolour card for the mat. On the white panel I stamped a simple Christmas greeting and added some stencil details.
