Hi all & today I'm posting a card I have been working on for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge. They have a really lovely theme, which is birthstones...
.. I wasn't sure what mine was, so after I looked it up on the chart & found it was Peridot (August), I instinctively thought of a Christmas tree & the shade of green on my new Pion papers that matched the Peridot perfectly. So I decided to use my 'Lying Tilda' & Stamps Away Christmas Tree background to make a cosy, winter night in scene...under the Christmas tree!
Appologies for the photos - my cameras not great unless its nice & bright outside, it really struggles if I take them in the evening under artificial light. Anyways, here's a closer look..
It is coloured with Distress Inks then highlighted with Crystal Glamour Dust.
