Christmas Isn't....


This isn't a typical card for my style, as many of you know. But I was drawn to the Outlines tree because is has so much versatlity, and I love those wavy lines.

The name of the Outlines stamp is Ornament Tree , and the topper is called Flower Tree Topper .

I stamped the image on watercolor paper using VersaMark ink, then finishing with JudiKins Detail Gold embossing powder. Once it was stamped on watercolor paper, and the second time it was stamped on lavendar cardstock.

The watercolor stamped image was colored using Tombow markers and a blender pen. It was cut on the inside line of the tree, then layered with the lavendar stamped image which was cut on the outside lines.

All the other details are pretty apparent. I used a Gold Geo Shapes sticker in the center of the tree topper.

The sentiment is from Penny Black, and one of my all time favorites.

Add a little May Arts ribbon, and it's a card!

This stamps has a very mod, Puccini vibe to it. It's just great. I really view you site as an online version of stamping magazines. The main difference is we have immediate access to purchase the tools used. You rock.
