Artistic Stamper Challenge


This over at the Artistic Stamper, the challlenge is to make a piece based on Christmas. Wasn't sure what I was doing at the time but just got a small canvas and coloured the background with red & green distress inks and stamped the tree over the top. I then masked the tree and stamped over in a deeper red and done some sponging on the canvas as well. I edged the canvas with gold krylon pen and a green dabber. The wording on the stamped tree was gone over with a crystal lacquer pen, another piece of stash wich I dont really use but they resurfaced last week so put them to use. Finished it off by adding mini grungeboard elements painted with a gold and green dabber. Hope you like my piece, the photo never seems to come out as good as I would like and it is more red than orange.
