Bottle Brush Trees

 Wednesday Greetings!
Hope all is well in your world.

I had fun creating this one.
The A7 base is white card stock and the patterned paper is very old Scenic Route.
I used Ranger TH Distress Specialty Stamping Card for my focal image.
I ink-blended Kitsch Flamingo using a blending brush. 
Then I stamped a Cornish Heritage Farms snowflakes background stamp using white pigment ink and clear-heat embossed it.
Next, I stamped the Stampers Anon/TH Bottle Brush Trees with Shady Lane VF Clair ink and heat embossed it with Ranger green embossing tinsel.
Then, I stamped the trees again with VF Clair Shady Lane ink, but I stamped just a bit to the right of each original image so the second stamping can be seen on that side. I heat-embossed that with clear powder.
Then, I sprayed a little water on a dab of Titanium White acrylic paint and made splatters on the trees and background.
Then I brushed the white paint along the bottom to ground the trees.

I also ink-blended a piece of white card with the pink Distress ink to die cut the Stamplorations sentiment, which I popped up on dimensional foam over the trees.
Final step was swiping around the edge of the card with Peeled Paint Distress ink.

I used this Splitcoaststampers sketch for my layout design.

Inside of card with Hero Arts stamped sentiment, and overhead shot of back of card.

Final view.
Thanks for the visit.
Enjoy your day.

I'm loving the sparkle and shine on this card Aimeslee! Between the embossing tinsel, the clear embossing and the splatters of bright white paint, this card is shining bright! I love the stamping technique you used on the trees, the lighter green actually looks like light shining on one side. Love it!!
