More Christmas Cards

This ismy first try at the Spotlighting Technique. This stamp set is perfect for this technique as every tree is different. I did make 4 of these cards but I "spotlighted" a different set of trees on each one. The cardstock used here is Certainly Celery, Pixie Pink textured and Confetti White. The ink is Certainly Celery.

As I promised yesterday, here is my CASE of the card I received from Nerine. I changed the colours a little - I used River Rock for the base card (instead of Neutrals Ivory, I think). The DSP is still from the Holiday Harmony pack. I inked the tree from Lovely as a Tree in Old Olive classic ink and then went over the trunk using a Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write marker. This was stamped onto Neutrals Ivory. I then sponged around the tree with Old Olive ink. The image was mounted onto Old Olive textured cardstock. The sentiment is from Short and Sweet and stamped in Purely Pomegranate. Thanks for the inspiration Nerine.
