Monochromatic Green Tree

The current CAS Colours and Sketches challenge is 'Monochromatic Green' and I've used one of my favourite Christmas stamps to make this card.

Card blank: 7" x 5" white silk 
Stamps: Woodware 'Christmas Bubble Tree'
Embossing: Clear embossing powder
Ink: Versafine Olympia Green
Colouring: Faber-Castell colour grip pencils
Card: Dark green and white
Paper: Snippet of dark green paper
Other: Glossy Accents, Triple Thick gloss glaze

I stamped and embossed the tree and sentiment onto white card, this was trimmed to size, layered onto green card and attached to the card blank.   I stamped the trunk onto a snippet of green paper, cut it out and applied gloss glaze.   When dry, this was attached to the card.  I coloured the baubles with various shades of green and then added Glossy Accents.

I always admire organised folks that get on and make Christmas cards in plenty of time! Love this stamp and the glossy accents just adds that little something extra. Thanks for playing at CC&S.
