Look At the Christmas Tree!


Good Morning bloggers, we have gone into tier 3 here in Leeds, I don't find it very hard as I don't really go out apart from shopping and I can still do that, and we have quiet Christmases since we lost our son. But I do see it is hard for other people. It's Saturday morning so It's time for a new challenge today at Allsorts, maybe this will help through the lockdowns.

This week is our lovely Brenda's turn to host and she would like to see 'Christmas Flowers, Trees & Wreaths'

I started by creating my wreath, using Lavinia fir cone branch to form the circle, then filling in with mini holly and mini berry using Versafine Clair inks. Some I did second generation stamping to give depth.  Once I was happy with the formation I stamped a fir tree and a Hare in the centre, I used a Gelly roll pen to give a shimmer on the tree.  Then using a mask I did a moon in a contrasting colour of ink.  I went round the edge of the card blending Colorbox ink and then splashed with water and dried.  Around the outside of the wreath using a glue pen I added a glitter in rose bud glow to give some sparkle.  Finally with a white posca pen I added highlights then a sentiment.

Don't forget to head over to Allsorts for all the details of this challenge, and to check out all the fabulous inspiration from my very talented team mates.

Another beautiful wreath Tracy, I keep meaning to ask you what colour Clair you use for the berries, gives a much most subtle finish that a bright red.

A really super wreath in great colours and a lovely addition with the images, great inky border too.
We are also into tier three but not surprising as we are not that far apart. Like you I have not been going out either.
