Oh Christmas Tree!
Well here is December's page for The Craft Barn's Calendar Challenge where the theme is GOLD/SILVER and CHRISTMAS TREES.
I've used the Christmas Tree stamp from Oak House Studio and embossed it in gold on some watercolour paper inked with a mix of Emerald Brushos and Citrus Lime Ink in a Bottle. For the background I've blended some Triple Fruity Red ink over Tim Holtz's Holiday Knit layering stencil to give that Scandinavian feel. It's just finished with the December Calendar, some gems for baubles and a Gold Stickles border.
I really need to get on with constructing my calendar but in the meantime here is a photo of all 12 pages together - all completely different but part of a set!
I'm happy that they are all done so I can make the calendar but sad this challenge has come to an end. If you've visited over the year and maybe left a comment - MANY THANKS! I'm looking forward to what challenges the New Year brings!
PS: Just having a new boiler fitted so thought I'd use my time wisely and finish my calendar. I've left it unstuck at the bottom so that I can pack it flat as a gift. It's a bit front heavy but it will be fine come April when there's 3 months at the front and back!!
