Darkroom Door Trees

This is my first attempt at using alcohol inks and it hasnt turned out to bad. The card is already glittered around the edge, I masked off the glittery edge with a sheet of paper and stamped the group of trees from the Darkroom Door Yuletide 1 stamp set using black Versafine ink. The Large tree is stamped in green Versafine onto white card and cut out and ribbon tied round and knotted.
The red and green background is made with Lettuce and Cardinal red alcohol ink wiped onto gloss card in a wave motion with a bit of felt. I then stamped the trees in Black Stazon. and embossed the shape of the background on my Mandala Reflections Board. I edged the panel with a Sakura gold Pen Touch metallic pen stamped the message and star on the card and then layered everything up on foam pads. Lastly I added a green crystal to the centre of the star.
