Starry Watercolor Tree

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by.


I've stamped the beautiful tree with Encore Gold ink and heat embossed.

The tree has been colored with Gansai Tambi Watercolours
and a soft wash in the background.

I've generously winked with Stella so it's very shimmery.
You can see it better here.

We've entered into Rudolph Days (the 25th of the month until the 31st)
so I'll take my tree over there to join in the fun.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Ahhh, such a pretty, festive tree. Love that it is embossed in gold with that gorgeous turquoise color. The WOS sparkle and shiny embellishments set it all off so nicely.

This is definitely one glorious tree. The different tones of teal really appeal to me and it's the perfect compliment to the gold. This is one special Christmas card. Love the pastel wash behind too, BRAVO!
