Colorful Christmas Tree!

This weeks  MUSE challenge has a great graphic tree. 

CASology's cue card is Festive so it fits in with that too.
I love the shape of the tree so I copied it but I wanted to add color in a different way.  For that, I took inspiration from this weeks Make it Monday to stamp an Ombre background.  A submission by Lesley really caught my eye so I CASEd it but used it for my focal point and not the background.  I made the card just 3.5" wide since it's such a skinny tree.  I think it makes for a very non-traditional, but really cute tree!  I put some dots of glossy accents on it to mimic ornaments.

Die - SSS hourglass die
Stamps - PTI
Inks - PTI & Hero Arts
Other - Glossy Accents

I die cut a few of the trees out of the paper I inked up.  Here is another card I made with the rest.

Thanks so much for Looking!

  2. Your ombre trees are fantabulous, what a great and unique idea!!

  3. Your tree is so pretty, it caught my eye in the Muse Gallery straight away. Just gorgeous!
