Home for Christmas

Meet the newly released Forest of Trees stencil from A Colorful Life Designs.
It's a good one for creating a forest scene.  
When I combined it with this patterned paper, it reminded me of a road and being on the way home for Christmas.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I looked through my patterned papers until I found this one with the stripes.  I placed it onto my Make Art Station and positioned the Forest of Trees over that.
  • Using some Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxide ink, I inked all the trees.
  • I removed the stencil and splattered with my white Posca pen to give a snowy effect and set aside to dry.
  • I placed the little car stamp into my Misti, stamped it with some Versafine Clair black ink and clear heat embossed it.  I fussy cut that out and set aside.
  • I placed the stenciled card front into my Misti and stamped the sentiment with some more black ink and clear heat embossed that to help it pop against the background.
  • I glued the panel onto a piece of beige cardstock, then onto an A2 sized card base.

Here is the stencil I used:

The forest of trees stencilling looks great over the striped paper Karen, and the fun card you added works brilliantly travelling along the white striped road, and a lovely sentiment to finish. x
