The Master Builder

Time for my weekly post for 100 Proof Press using the fabulous Tall Conifer stamp to create a Christmas Card.
I created my background with Distress Inks broken china, applying faded jeans around the edges and spritzing with water for that snowy feel.
I have used a snowflake stencil in the background, sponging through the stencil with Distress Inks, adding a couple of snowflakes randomly to the background. The sentiment is one of my favourites, an old Inkadinkado stamp which I have stamped with manganese blue archival ink.
The Tall Conifer has been stamped with black archival ink and I have added a little Distress Ink to the bottom of each tree. For added dimension I have also included three small wooden birds, coloured with broken china ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Enjoy your weekend. Tracy x x
