Oh Christmas Tree At Make My Monday

Hello everyone, I hope you all had a lovely weekend despite the somewhat chilly weather. I woke up yesterday morning to sunshine but the coldest day for a long time as it was -1.5 degrees and we normally only get that in February in the middle of the night!
Today sees the start of a new challenge at Make My Monday and Caz has chosen the seasonal theme of Oh Christmas Tree so would like to see Christmas trees of the outdoor or indoor variety as the focal point on your creation.
For my inspiration my Tim Holtz Scribbly Christmas trees came to the rescue.

I stamped the trees on medium surface cartridge paper with Archival Fern Green and Adirondack Butterscotch inks. I then added a little colour with Intense pencils and cut the images to a panel.

I stamped the text repeatedly on a strip of the same paper with the Fern Green ink. I then used a ruler with the Adirondack Cranberry marker pen to draw a box around round the edges of the panels.

I glued the panels to a long card blank I made from an A4 sheet of card to finish.

Have a great week and see you again soon.
Fliss xx

Love your scribble trees Fliss and a gorgeous card style too. Couldn't get over the touch of snow we had last weekend, it's a bit early for all that :-)! Chris xx
