Try Stampin' On Tuesday sketch 95

Hi Lovelies,

Here is my very first card as a DT member of Try Stampin' On Tuesday & the sketch it's based on.

Here is my card based on this sketch.  I used Distress ink to stamp the tree, before colouring it in with a Prismacolor pencil.  I then used Baby oil to even out the colouring.  Stickles where added to the tree for some sparkle.  I stamped the sentiment with Versafine & added Baker's Twine.  The pattern paper is Just Believe by Kaisercraft.   Thank you for stopping by today & I hope I have inspired you to play along with us over at Try Stampin' On Tuesdays this week.

Welcome aboard Paula. Love the vintage feel of this card. Love the effect that the Prismacolour Pencils made. I have these and have tried to use them with baby oil. Great job.

I love how you combined patterns and the offset to the Christmas tree. I too like the effect of the pencils.

Hmmm, never heard of the baby oil thing. I certainly works though--your card is stunning. Love the feel of it, kind of vintage and I love the white space--hard for me to do but love the look! Welcome to the team I am excited to work with you.
