Tuesday Taggers - Oh Christmas tree

Here is my entry for this weeks Tuesday Taggers where the theme is Christmas Trees. I've done it again - I've made something very difficult to photograph! I stamped the tree (Stampin' Up!) in brilliance Mediterranean Blue and Colorbox Chalk Warm Green. I then used Kaleidoscope embossing powder on it, part of my Sir Stampalot goodies.  I stamped the Fir branch (All Night Media) in Versamark onto navy card stock and used the same embossing powder on it. It is a gorgeous effect, but capturing it on a photo is very difficult indeed! The colours range from copper through yellow and green to blue and purple - incredibly iridescent, honest!  I hope you can get enough of an impression from these photos. Thanks for looking!
