Sundays with Santa - "Christmas Tree"

Good Morning Ladies, well its Sunday again and its time for "Santa on Sunday" and as we missed last week (we didnt have a theme) so this week is a card containing  a "Christmas Tree" and Ive used this lovely set of Art Impressions stamps to create my card. I used the tree and my Marvy Le Plume pens on it by using the nib to ink the edges, then I stamped it onto water colouring paper then used my damp brush to pull out the colour. Ive done the same with the birds, lambs and the basket of tree ornaments.
I then drew a line to create the lights, and then with some masking fluid I masked of where I wanted the snow to fall. I have also used some stickles on the lights and baubles just to give it extra sparkle. I then rubbed of the masking fluid to make it look like the snow had fallen on the lambs.
The actual base card is a 7"x 6" white card with a first layer of dark blue card, and Ive used a piece of blue pearlescent card on top, but because the image is large Ive just layered this onto dark blue card and positioned the image in the middle. The sentiment is one of the LOV christmas seals and this was stamped onto white card then Ive used the circle Nestabilitie die to cut it out and a larger on and blue card for the mount.
It youd like to pop across and maybe take part just click on the Santa for Sunday name and it will take you there, its Pops idea to start a collection early for next Christmas, there are quite a few girls taking part and if youd also like to become one or group do please come to visit as its a bit of fun and its useful to start collecting early so you can at least have quite a number by December.
