I stamped the larger tree in versafine black and clear embossed it, then used sponges and distress inks to create the wintery sky background, then trimmed close to the image.
The sentiment from Life is so much better was alos stmaped and embossed onto spare card and cut out.
The card background was made by splitting a piece of corrugated card and then spraying it with an ancient green glimmer mist before rubbing a bit of gold wax over parts of it.
The second card I used a spare bit of white card and stamped the trees, then used sponges, black soot and hickory smoke distress inks and torn paper to create the landscape. The sky was also sponged using the hickory smoke again and broken china.Trimmed down again to fit across a card blank, then the sentiment from Life is so much better stamped below.
