The Spirit of Christmas

Good morning it's Elizabeth here with a project made using the gorgeous new Winterland Wood stamps.

I started by stamping out the large tree from the set, using peeled paint Distress Ink as I wanted a watercolour feel to my project..

Then on a piece of white card 7 1/2" square I used Super Thick Slap It On through the Star Stencil dried it with my heat gun and then gave it a light colour wash of diluted Grandma's Teacup and Peppermint Tea Cottage Garden paint. The Super Thick creates a resist against the paint, so the stars pop through.

On a scrap piece of white card I stencilled again using the Super Thick Slap It On through the Spirit of Christmas stencil and gave that a colour wash of Grandma's Teacup paint before cutting it out.

I fussy cut the tree's out and added some of the gorgeous Unicorn Sparkles for snowy branches.

After distressing the edge of my background I added it to an 8" square card blank, and positioned the tree's across the centre.

I added torn strips of  Muslin across the bottom of the card to create some texture and then painted the the edges with some diluted Luscious Powder letting the colours run into the card behind. I also added more colour to the base of the tree's to ground them.

I finished off by adding the sentiment, some sequins and of course a little splattering of white GeeSsoGood.

I hope you enjoyed the project, don't forget to try adding luscious over the top of your paint and inks for another look.
