Stippled Christmas Trees

Well, here I am again. And, this was a really quick card to make as I used a left over negative  of a die cut pine tree and created a stippled design. I used the Gina K. Designs Edible Eggplant dye ink to stipple in the trees and then added some rhinestones. I then finished it by adding the Gina K. Designs sentiment from the Winter Cheer set. Really an easy peasy card design. Oh, I also brushed my stipple brush along the bottom to sort of give the illusion of a snow buildup beneath the trees.


It pays to go through the left overs from die cuts and see if the negatives can be used in a creative way. I am really liking this and might have to do a few more as it went so quick. And, I am in the rush mode now. LOL

Thanks again for stopping in and for all the nice comments.

God bless,
Verna

  3. Love this CAS designed card. You were so thinking out of the box with the eggplant color, but it is gorgeous. I agree, you can do so much with the negatives and die cuts that you don't use. I completed tons of Christmas tags with the ones from my scrap box.
