Seasons Greetings for That's crafty Challenges

Hi everyone
With this week being the first week of December our latest challenge, starting today, over at That's Crafty Challenges 


So it's time to share with us your festive makes and remember one lucky winner will win a £20 voucher to spend in the online store.

He's my piece of inspiration for you

I have started by picking one of my many gelli prints that I am working my way through to use up. I then die cut the 2 trees using the Tim Holtz Woodlands Thinlits from white card and laid this over the gelli print. I then added the die cut trees on top adding a 3 die cut tree because I have to work in odd numbers.
I tore some strips of the gelli print to act as snowy covered hills.
Finally I have sprinkled on white ultra thick embossing powder and heat embossed to look like snow.

I have layered up the trees and the hills using 3D gell so it has a 3D effect which hopefully you can see better in this photo.
My team mates have made some fabulous festive pieces and you can pop along HERE to check them out.
We all hope you will join in with us this fortnight as there is one thing most of us will be doing at the moment and that is creating festive makes!
Thanks for stopping by
