Winter Tree Stamps

Elaine here with another of my samples made for the HOCHANDA TV show on December 4th.


 It's a simple landscape card using the Waterfall Pure Colour ink for the sky - I masked off the rectangle, masked off the hill and sponged some of the diluted Waterfall onto the card.  I then stamped both the Oak Trees (large and small) from the WINTER TREES set and used a black pen for the border.  I've finished it off with Winter Time but there are other words in the set including Warm Wishes and Wonderland.

Having made this one I decided to create another as a Christmas card adding Happy Christmas which is another Oak House Studio stamp and some Star Dust Stickles to give that frosty feel.

First time round I didn't notice that there are two different cards - both are gorgeous, the differences are subtle but it shows how just small changes can make each card unique
