Tree time again!

I promised I'd post a couple more tree cards - well these are the last two! This one uses Scrapbook paper again - actually not the colours I'd originally thought of at all, but just what seemed to work! I really like black/white papers at the moment, and this one's from My Mind's Eye:It's double sided, so I've used the other side to make a strip across the top and bottom of the card. I've also rubbed it with the same inkpad I used to stamp the trees as the dots were a bit too white. The shiny baubles are stickers from Paperchase that I picked up one time I was there and have used a lot. I added the red piece of ribbon to tie in with the red baubles.

Stamps used:Elusive Images Madonna and Trees, Angel and Trees
My Mind's Eye paper - Our Son collection

This next card was a bit of a happy accident!The pink tree on its own didn't have enough 'oomph' so I stamped the exact same but smaller tree in black in the middle.The background layers are all sprayed with the Moulin Rouge Glimmer Mists and then overstamped with various of the tree stamps sideways on (make great backgrounds!) You can see some of the layers in this close-up:
Materials :
Stamps used: Elusive Images Madonna and Trees, Angel and Trees, Christmas Reflections, Christmas Foliage

These tree cards are gorgeous Helen, especially the one using the My Mind's Eye papers. I love these papers and have quite a few myself. Mental remainder here - put scissors to paper and start using them instead of just looking at them!
