This week's challenge over at Bah! Humbug! is Christmas Trees.
Rather than going down the traditional route I decided to use my Penny Black Fantasy Tree which was stamped and gold embossed. I then decided to create a pyramage using a set of nesties that I bought which were exclusive to Create & Craft. Instead of using all the dies in the normal way I thought I would alternate each die at a 45 degree angle so they all fit inside each other but created a different look. I also cut the largest shape from a piece of gold mirri and laid this down on my square card blank first so that the gold would glint through the layers. I then used silicone glue to pyramage all the layers. I then used various Stickles glue to add colour making it look as though there were Christmas lights throughout the tree. I then added some ribbon and gems. The sentiment is computer generated and matted using my Stampin Up oval and scalloped oval punches.
Thanks for stopping by.
