I lined up the sentiment and the blue tree then stamped directly to the card front. The stamp set is a great builder set - so I added the tree trunk and the horizontal lines. I masked off the sentiment with some removable tape, then used the big Clarity Stencil brush to add the blue glow. Then I mixed a few drops of white acrylic paint with a few drops of water, picked some up with a paintbrush and used my finger to tap the paintbrush and splatter the paint/snow on the scene.
Separately I created the pink tree with the vertical lines and the green tree with the ornaments. I tapped the white paint over them too. I wanted each tree to be distinctly different so I die cut a tree trunk from the coordinating die set for the pink tree and added a sparkly star to the green tree.
This card was inspired by this AAA Challenge.
Obviously I liked their grouping of trees. I had originally intended to go with the bright colors - but then I fell in love with the sentiment and had to go softer. Hmmm...I think I'll have to try a bright one too!
