The Craft Barn Weekly Challenge - Tree(s)

Here we are at the last Craft Barn Weekly Challenge of 2015. Amazingly I have only missed one week during the year.

For this last week our project should include at least one tree. I started by making a sheet of background paper applying PaperArtsy Fresco paints with a brayer before stencilling on some snowflakes. I stamped the Crafty Individuals image on to the background and coloured the trees and letters with some shimmer coloured pencils that have been in my stash for years and never used. I then added a bit of sparkle to the stars with a Sakura glitter pen. The image was again stamped onto a piece of white card.  The jolly robin was painted with Distress Inks and his hat with Twinkling H2Os before cutting him out and sticking him to the card with his top half lifted from the card with silicone glue for a 3d effect. The base card was stamped around the edge with  JOFY's Snowflakes image and again coloured with the coloured pencils.
Sorry it's not a very good photo but the light has been so poor recently.


 Whatever way you celebrate the festive season I hope you  "Have a Very Jolly Time".
