Impression Obsession Old is New ~ Winter Tree

 Sometimes we get so busy with the new released stamps that we forget about our old favorites. The Impression Obsession team has set aside a days this month to share some new projects using some great older stamps.

You can see the list of today’s participants on the Impression Obsession Blog.

This is one of my favourite Tree dies, the one I pick any time I need a Tree die.  I really like the shape of it and the style of the branches. For my card today, I ran it through my Gemini Jr. using white card stock. 

Being a Winter card I decided to use the hugs die. It is cold and has been snowing quite a bit today in my area. Everyone will need hugs.

For the background I used Arches 140# Cold Press watercolour paper and with Ken Oliver's Color Burst powders in Ultramarine Blue.

Once the background was dry I splattered with Nuvo Glitter Gloss pen, then splattered with white watercolour paint. I added the Glitter Gloss to the tree as well. In real life it is very pretty and has that sparkle we see from a new snowfall.

I attached the Color Burst panel to a white card base and glued the tree and hugs using Nuvo Adhesive.

I really like the way this turned out, and I hope you do as well.

On the inside of the card I stamped Warm Wishes using VersaFine Clair Ink in
