CCEE Stampers challenge is to make a card with either dry or wet embossing. I used green and silver paper, to go along with Speedy Fox and Friends them of a green Christmas, on my Easel card. I chose to use the Mark's Finest Paper new stamp set called "A Chill in the Air". I love primitive stamps so I gave this stamp a Primitive look. I stamped the image once and without reinking, I stamped it beside the first image to make the branch look really full. I added some white paint to the limb for my snow. I used a copic marker to make the red berries. The "Merry Christmas" sentiment is from another Mark's Finest Paper stamp set. In our blog hop this week, Janine used ornaments on her tree branch and I thought that was a great idea so I added ornaments also.
Thanks, for stopping by today and I hope to see you over at Speedy Fox and Friends and the
CCEE Stampers blog joining us for the challenge. If you can't join. at least come by and see what the other team members made. You might get a really neat idea for your Christmas cards.
