Oh Christmas Tree...♪ ♫







Oh Christmas Tree...♪ ♫. Ok...enough of the Christmas carols...now that song will be in my head till I hear another one. The Large Burlap Tree and the Small Burlap Tree stamps felt a little bare to me...so...off I went to find something to spruce them up. A little vintage paper from Graphic 45 paper "Glad Tidings", and some frosted gems is just what these stamps needed. First I inked with Memento inks...the tree with Cottage Ivy and the burlap with Rich Cocoa, then stamped and colored with copics #E11, E33, E35. I added a little shadow at the bottom with some warm grey #W1, #W3. Smudged the edges with just a tiny hair of Memento Potters Clay to vintage it out a little. Everything is matted in a beautiful red cardstock. The Small Burlap Tree popped is up for some extra dimension.
