I am so excited to be taking part in the Festive Friday challenge - my very first time at doing so. I was so inspired by the challenge photo that I just HAD to take part.
The colours in this really appealed to me, the sparkle, the pearls and those cone/tree decorations just jumped right out at me and had to take a real focal point in my card. I wanted to create a tag style card with a background of three cone trees. Ideally I wanted the one to be pink pearlised card (which I didn't have any of) and another I wanted to cover completely in pearls - this would have taken hundreds of them which would have been too much for one card!! Instead, I created a a white glitter tree with some pearl baubles (a compromise) and to get the pink pearlised card I wanted, I did a colour wash on cream pearlised card using watercolour pencils - this did the trick!! My third tree was the plain cream pearlised card with snowflakes stamped on it using desert sand memento ink.
I layered my trees as a background and then added a jumping reindeer in white pearlised card over the top. A sentiment was added at the top and bottom, heat embossed in gold and voila….
Thank you for having me to play along this week and I look forward to seeing all the other entries for this challenge.
