My Artsy Trees

 
Hi All, don't be shocked I'm posting again so soon, lol.  I was really inspired by the challenge at City Crafters this week called Artsy Trees.  I used a Gecko Galz image from the Winter Garden set along with the Gecko Galz paper Zen Garden for the envelope liner, the colors matched and there was something snowflake like about the purple and white image.   I gave you a side shot to show the white flocking I added to the trees.  I used a Sakura Quickie glue pen (looks like a ballpoint pen) to add the flock.  The ribbon tape is from Michaels it has a bit of glitter in it and the pearls are from Pizzazz Aplenty.  I printed the image on Staples photo paper matte/matte twice, fussy cut the man with the umbrella and mounted a little foam behind the umbrella only.  The purple paper is from Stampin Up. 
By the way, this is what the weather in Michigan looks like right now.
 Don't forget the buy 1 get 1 sale at Gecko Galz.  
Well that's it, thanks for stopping by and thanks for looking.  ~Diane

  12. Diane...your card is stunning. The trees are simply gorgeous. That flock adds such a wonderful subtle texture and dimension. I can almost hear the quiet (does that make sense?) of the snow falling in your beautiful wintry scene. I also wanted to thank you so much for the very nice comment you left on my blog regarding my last post for Simon Says Stamp's Design Team. Your words are greatly appreciated. <3 Candy
