Cardmaking

Trim the tree – I dare you!

Happy Friday crafty friends! It’s time for our new Daring Cardmakers Challenge and this week we’d love to see some trees on your projects, please! They can be any kind of tree you like, a Christmas Tree,  a Wonderful Winter Landscape or maybe some shady palm trees if you’re in warmer climes!
Make it just one tree or a whole forest.

I love putting up our Christmas tree and decorating it because so many of our decorations are from special people or places so they bring back lots of lovely memories. This is our tree this year….

For my tree themed project I wanted to try out some new brusho colours which I recently ordered.

I heat embossed some trees and snow flakes on 6 x 8 cm pieces of mixed media paper. Then I added the brusho crystals and sprayed with water before adding a few tiny drops of diluted bleach. You can check out the video on my YouTube channel to see what I did.

I love how the effect varies so here are the different panels from the first batch I made.

The only downside is I ended up with really stained hands…. like it might appear I have murdered a smurf!

However it was worth it and I’ve since made another 20 for one of the recipients of the first batch! Hope you are keeping safe and well and finding some time for crafting.
