Rainbow trees

Hello everyone. As soon as I saw the card that Laura Bassen created for the recent Holiday Workshop class at Online Card Classes, I knew I wanted to use her idea and technique with my Tim Holtz stencil. As always, this class was filled with inspiration, but I have only managed to create this one card so far.

I used Catherine Pooler inks and blending brushes to do my rainbow ink blending. I white heat embossed this beautiful bold sentiment (Festive Cheer, Penny Black), trimmed & fussy cut it out and mounted it to my panel using thin foam tape. To finish off, I added a few clear drops.

I'm linking up my card at:
