Trees and/or Leaves for Allsorts Challenge

Hello and welcome!

A new theme starts today at Allsorts challenge and it's Dena's turn to host. She chose the optional theme of "Trees and/or Leaves". Hope to see you playing along with us for your chance to win. We have a £15 store voucher from Wowvow and stencil to give away this week, so there will be 2 prizes.

I had my Lavinia stamps out from another project I was working on so I decided to stamp a scene using some Lavinia stamps. 

I used Lavinia's Hills mask set to ink up the background with a circle die cut in place to mask the moon. I used Chipped Sapphire and Seedless Preserve Distress inks. After removing the moon I used Penny Black's Hypnotic stencil with light touch of Seedless Preserves ink.

Related Products:  

Silhouette stamps are Lavinia Stamps Valco and Fairy Fir Tree small, Penny Black Nature's Friends for branches, Hero Arts birds from a retired Stamp Kit and the sentiment comes from Penny Black's Happy Critters set. All stamping was done using Versafine Onyx ink. 

It's not showing up on any of the photos but I used a Sakura Stardust clear glitter gel pen on the fir trees to make them sparkle. 

Thanks so much for visiting!

A wonderful scene with the contrast of the silhouette stamps.

Joanne said...

Another lovely card. I'm always amazed at your ability to create a whole scene and just love those little added "extras" that show up the longer I study them.. like the snowflake image around the moon.

Lovely scene Ellibelle. I can almost hear the dog barking and the bird wings flapping as they take off. Thank you for entering the Celebrate The Simple Things Challenge at Path of Positivity.
