Quick notes: I scored a piece of glossy cardstock at every half inch then brayered Baja Breeze Classic ink onto it. This left nifty white stripes where I scored! I then layered a piece of vellum cardstock that I ripped along the top edge. I stamped a sentiment ($1 stamp by Studio G) along the bottom with StazOn and layered ontop of the brayered background and then matted both on a piece of Basic Gray cardstock. Added some brads and satin ribbon to hold the vellum in place. This piece was then adhered to a River Rock cardbase with dimensionals
Next up I stamped the tree image from the Mr. Twigster set and colored with a Copic Marker. I then adhered some copper microbeads over the ornaments using Crystal Effect. They ended up looking a lot like pinecones rather than the blinged out ornaments I was trying to achieve. But I like 'em anyways! To finish I added a bit of Liquid Applique and heat set for a nice snowy ground!
