I am loving the Colour Challenge this month – just my colours. I have used Brushos for the background and the Gothic Fragments stamp set. I have stamped and cut out the elements, so there is no tricky masking involved. I hope that you like it.
I also sent this one in as one of the TV samples for the recent TV shows on the Craft Channel. Lesley is a fabulous demonstrator – so do look out for the shows and catch up online.

Step By Step:
Paint Brusho onto the watercolour card. Whilst still wet drop on some of the crystals and spritz with water to create the tree foliage and foreground. Dry.
Stamp the tree with glue and apply the gilding flakes. Press down the flakes and leave for a few minutes before buffing off with a sponge (to remove the excess). Clean the stamp quickly to remove any glue residue.
Use the fine tipped pen to add some shading to the tree and draw in a base to anchor the tree.
Stamp the leaves with Sepia ink, and the sentiment with black ink.
Edge the card with black marker. Attach the ribbon and bow and mount onto black card, and then glue to card front.
