More trees!

I have been using my new trees and one or two other stamps to make more Christmas cards and gifts. This first card features the black forest stamp and also Musical Melody. I used Adirondack inks in Pool and Cool Peri - I love this colour combination. The central panel is on silk art card using my mountain and valley stencil. All of the pieces of card on this one are snippets, so I am rushing off to the snippet playground with it. Miss Di says they will let me play on whatever I like now I am a brown belt, lol!
I've also made another easel calendar using the timeless rectangle spellbinders. 
I made the scene using memento inks and ink dusters in much the same way as the tree scene on my second video tutorial. I used the inkylicious twiggy trees, birds from the windswept set and a quote from a set of hobby art landscape quotes.
I picked out a bit of detail on the tree and reflection with a white gel pen.
If  you are going to the NEC then look out for all these stamps on the Inkylicious stall. Thanks so much for your lovely comments. There is just one day left on the follower candy which I will draw on Saturday. Thanks for looking!

  11. Me again! Just sat and watched your video. I was totally mesmerised by it. Beats using a brayer any day( good excuse for not getting it out of the pristine box it resides in tucked away in a drawer) I love your soothing voice. Nothing like my Essex twang.
    Hugs Mrs A.
