O'Christmas Tree

Our Creative Corner has a great new challenge this week from Susan.... here are her instructions to the Design Team "The technique of dripping Alcohol Inks onto Foil has an amazing effect.  The item you make can be anything; a free standing decoration,  or an element to place onto your project, experiment and have some fun, it is getting close to the silly season, so why not let go and free all those inhibitions and let rip with some colour!" Although I didn't dip my tin into the alcohol ink, instead I used a felt pad to apply mine.

Here's the order I used these items:
Cardstock - CloseToMyHeart Topiary
Die - Sizzix Banners
Embossing Folder - Dots
Alcohol Ink - Tim Holtz Citrus & Meadow
Red Dots - Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze Flirty
set those all aside to dry

Cut out the Star using QuicKutz Deck the Halls Star Die
colored it with Alcohol Ink - Tim Holtz Gold

rectangleCardstock - CloseToMyHeart  Chocolate

Embossing Folder - Snow coated inside using
Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze Sassy Silver

I assembled the tree using Glue Dots, the put small foam squares all over the back of largest "tree" before ahearing to snow background, then I added
"snow" - White Puffy Fabric Paint


  1. Oh, what a lovely card! And what a great idea to turn banners into a tree!

  2. Hello Paula.
    This Tree looks fantastic, the Alcohol inks create wonderful depth and texture, fabulous design too.

  3. Wow...Paula, I love how you applied this technique by using felt pad. It has such great effect on the tree and this card is fabulous! .. :)
