Merry & Bright - Hot Trees

Every year I plan to start Christmas cards early on so it's not so much of a rush later in the year. More often than not, it doesn't happen. In which case I try and get stuck into them from July. That didn't happen this year either. When the Christmas decorations started appearing in the shops I got a little freaked out and have been in full Christmas card mode for a few weeks now. I think I am well and truly covered now, but the ideas keep coming!

This has been a favourite colour combination for a while, coming from decorations I saw in Myer a few years ago (and the colours are much like the 'Hot Tropics' range of Prima flowers). Well, let's face it... I'm probably gonna love anything with purple in it! When it came to colouring the trees I found the Elegant Eggplant was just a bit too dark, and it took a bit of experimenting to find something I was happy with. I finally settled on using the Orchid Opulence marker like an Aquapainter and using it to pick up colour from the lid of the Elegant Eggplant inkpad. Other colours used are Pixie Pink, Real Red and Only Orange. The layout for the card was a Di Hickman sketch. All products by Stampin' Up!
