Happy Little Stampers - ATC Challenge

Today I'm sharing my first 2018 atc as part of the Happy Little Stampers DT. This month we'd like to see trees featured.

And here's my atc:

I started by preparing a background using a stencil and brusho crystals. Then I die cut the two trees and added some snowy edges with a white gel pen and completely covered them with a sparkle pen.

I placed the trees and then stamped some words using a matching coloured ink - I wanted them to be seen, but sort of fading into the background. Once happy both the trees were raised on pads and adhered on top. I finished off with a trio of green gems - not showing that well in the photos, but catching the light in real life.

Stamps: HLS, Mixed Media Fun
Inks: Ranger distress, lucky clover; Brusho, turquoise & yellow
Die: HLS, Christmas trees 
Stencil: Uniko, broken lines
Pens: Sakura gelly roll, white; Spectrum Noir Sparkle, clear
Embellishments: Mei Flower, green gems

Well that's got me off to a good start with atc creating and I'm wondering if anyone is interested in doing a swap with me.  Just leave a comment below if you'd like to.

Before I go I'll remind you to pop on over to HLS to enjoy and be inspired by the rest of the DT cards - they're pretty amazing.

Thanks for your time. And keep crafing!
