These are both made on an 8x8 That's crafty! panel which will take everything you throw at it, hence all the texture and paint and gel.
I've used Light Texture Paste on the background of this one and then the tree is done with 3D Gloss Gel Medium through a stencil. Once it's completely dried, you can heat it with a heat gun to 'restickify' it and apply the foil.
I've used the Gloss Gel again here, this time coloured with Brushos. I love that leaf stencil.
