Penny Black Filigree Tree

Over on the Penny Black blog they are having a challenge to make a Christmas card in July this week. I managed to find a few minutes to get one whipped up. I have loved this tree image ever since I saw it a few years back, so elegant! I began the card by embossing the tree twice with clear embossing ink and then embossing them with clear embossing powder for some extra intrest in the background. I then embossed the tree slightly to the right of the center with Crafty Capers Silver Rainbow embossing powder (it has a nice sparkle to it in real life). I added two strips of Be Creative tape and applied Glitter Ritz glitter to them (Liberty Blue). I stamped the sentiment (Penny Black Holiday Cheer) with Ranger's Adirondack Denim dye ink on a 1/2 of a Spellbinders Labels 8. I hid the edge of the label with a piece of Hero Arts ribbon. I added clear gems to the tree and the sentiment piece then used my Tombow Glue pen to add stars to the sky and glittered them up with Glitter Ritz Warm Highlight.
Thanks for stopping by.
