Green Snowy Trees

Stepping up the Christmas card making now!

I was inspired by a card by Tracey Metcalfe in the November issue of Making Cards (pg 79, if you've got it). However, I used quite different materials and methods to get a similar look.

The background is alcohol inks and I stamped two triangular Hero Arts trees with green acrylic paint. Then I stamped the 'snow' with white ink and a Bo Bunny distressed dots stamp, and embossed it with glittery embossing powder.
