Mama Elephant O' Tiny Tree

Sharing another Christmas card with you today.  This one features the O' Tiny Tree set from Mama Elephant that I got shortly after Christmas last year and am finally inking up.

This is such a cute image.  There are lots of different ornaments and things you can hang off it, but I opted to go just for the lights.  This image gives me all the Charlie Brown Christmas feels!

I stamped the tree image on kraft with Versafine using my MISTI, leaving the stamp in place.  

Using the other half of my MISTI, I stamped the pine needles.  I started by stamping them with white pigment ink and then followed up with dye ink.  This allows the dye ink to stand out a bit more on the kraft.  I also employed a couple of shades of green, using an ink dauber to add darker color to the portions of the needles closest to the branches.

Once I was done with that, I stamped the string of lights, and then colored those and the tree/base with colored pencils.

Remember how I left the original tree stamp in place?  Once I was done with the pencil coloring, I placed my panel back in that corner and re-stamped with Versafine.  This serves to sharpen up the image where you might have gotten a bit of colored pencil on the stamping.

I added the sentiment, and ended up using a journaling pen to connect the end of the light string to the a in falalala.

So fun!  

A couple mats from Lawn Fawn's 6x6 knit prints paper pad finished things off.

That's all for me today!  How are you guys doing on your Christmas cards?
