Song or Carol Title for PanPastel


Happy Sunday Everyone.

This is a Christmas card with 'O Christmas Tree' as the inspiration this week for our PanPastel UK challenge.


I used Crafty Individuals paper and stamp using the pans to colour the tree stamped with embossing ink. I used a zig glue pen on the stars and added glitter and when it was completely dry I drew around them using a white pen.


The background paper from one of the CI Christmas paper pads was given a wash of white acrylic paint and lightly blended with green PP when dry. I sealed it and then covered it with Tim's frosted film to get that opaque sparkly look to it. I used cream glittered card for the embellishments and music paper with the carol title and music on to give a collage style.

Today I am visiting my sister and delivering her Christmas presents and I hope to get back to get one of my Christmas trees decorated. I hope you are in full swing with all your preparations.

A big thank you to Anita who sent me a card for Becca, it arrived yesterday Anita, I shall see her tonight and be able to give it to her.

Have a great day.

Hello Brenda
A gorgeous card that relates a calm and neutral feel; but that is what the Green palette does to the on-looker. Love how you have created a little movement by adding the snowflake die-cut too.
