Monochromatic Christmas

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I hope you all have a good Monday, a busy day yesterday and going to be a busy week.  Lots of preparation work to get done for February Trade show and then the NEC in March.  Before I show you my card I have a photograph I took yesterday of a Heron sat on our garden fence.  He has been visiting our garden for a few days now and managed to get capture him.  He sat here for about half an hour.


Today's card is a Christmas Card, another to add to my collection for this year.  So far on track for this year.  I have used the Fat Robin set from Chocolate Baroque.


Recipe

1. 6 x 6 white square card which I have matted and layered black pearlescent card.
2. The second layer is white card which I have stamped the sentiment and snowflakes with Versafine and embossed with Stampendous clear embossing powder.
3. Using Pebeo Silk paint Ice I painted black card stock, I then stamped the trees with Versamark and embossed with WOW Embossing Powders Silver Bells.  I then cut out the image and edge with Silver Marker pen.


Thank you for stopping by Today 
Hugs xxxxx
