Snowflake Forest


Today the Flourishes Senior Design Team Girls are showing off an oldie but goodie set....Forest of Trees.  It's really a classic set that you'll never grow out of using.  So, I know you'll enjoy today's Flourishes Friday.


I decided to go with a winter theme and this beautiful pine tree.  I embossed it in white and then watercolored the "open spaces" with my Letraset Aqua Markers, giving it some nice green color.  Then I also embossed the snowflakes from another Flourishes set Warm Winter Wishes.  And then I sponged some Memento Ink in Summer Sky and Nautical Blue to give it a night sky feel to the glowing tree.  I used the Color Made Easy True Blue Collection of papers and ribbon as well.  The sentiment is from another Flourishes set - Paperwhites, because I thought it went well with the glowing tree.




Then for embellishing, I took a Spellbinders snowflake die, and die cut out some shrinky plastic and heat set it to become this little snowflake accent, jazzing it up with some chunky glitter.  The tree also has some Prima faceted gems on it to give it the feeling of light. The papers are older MME.   

Now how about some sale fun???
