Hi everyone. Can you believe that today is the 1st of December!! (Oooooooohhhh!! Not long to go until Father Christmas comes!!) The trouble is we have got Christmas weather now and I just know that all this Christmassy white stuff will have vanished by the time Christmas gets here - it always does!! Oh for a proper white Christmas!!
The Stamp Man's ATC Swap blog. The theme for this one is 'Tis The Season so as you can see I opted to go for a wintery looking Christmas tree using my Swirly Trees stamp set.
I embossed my actual ATC using a Papermania Snowflake embossing folder and very lightly coloured the embossed snowflakes using a pale lilac Copic marker. I stamped and embossed the tree border using a white inkpad and Detail White embossing powder onto mauve Bazzill card. For the main image, I stamped using black Memento ink and then coloured the image using Copics before cutting it out and mounting it to my ATC.
Once I'd coloured my tree I then used my Ranger Inkssentials White Opaque pen to trace over the branches of the tree and also to make the background dots white to emulate snow.
However I'm sure that all you ATC'ers out there can do a much better job than I can so why don't you hop on over to The Stamp Man's ATC Swap blog to find out how you can participate.
Until my next post - try and keep warm and think of me battling the -10c wind chill factor whilst doing some Christmas shopping! That is of course if I can get the car out of the drive!!
