I created the background using magenta, orange and lime green pan pastels, using the new medium to blend them together. I then used a Premium Craft Brands mask stencil (trees) and Maimeri Iridescent paste to add tree to my background. Once dry, I trimmed the background down.
I then stamped some leaves from the Sizzlet leaves set using distress inks and then cut them out using the matching dies. I also cut some winter flowers (from Tattered Lace) and coloured them with pan pastels (same colours as background). All were them layered to look as if leaving were hanging from the branches.
I added a frame (which was actually the waste from a previous project) and a vellum sentiment (from K&Co). A few extra die cuts were added for interest (and balance).
As I thought the bottom looked at little bare, I added another stamped and die cut leaves in the corner .... I'm definitely not a CAS person (lol).
A quick post from me as whilst trying to do some house keeping on my blog, I managed to lose everything. Slowly adding stuff back and updating where necessary, so please nare with me,
