This is my second project for this week's Sketch Challenge. For this card I have chosen a Woodware set with Jane's Bubble Tree. I love this stylised tree because it's such fun to decorate. I have gone for a slightly more grungy look. I am using a lot of creams and browns this Christmas. Do you find you go through periods of certain colour combos.......I know I do!
I stamped the tree with Vesamark and embossed with white powder on to Kraft card stock. I then die-cut my circles and stamped a few little snowflakes in brown. I coloured in the tree trunk with some paint from the Vintage micacolor palette. I splattered some of these gorgeous paints over the entire circle. Then you can decorate to your hearts content!! I used various pearls and gems from my stash. I particularly like the 3 sizes of natural coloured pearls that Woodware sell. They are great as they go with just about every thing!!

The background was a combination of scrapbook paper (this was an old Magenta Christmas paper), Kraft card and brown Bazzill. I stamped the sentiment and some extra snowflakes in brown onto the background paper. To give the layers a more snowy feel I sponged a little Versamark along the bottom and top edges of the paper then embossed with white powder. I quite like this effect. It just softens the edges and adds to the slightly grungy look.
