Treats on Tuesday with Christine - La gâterie du mardi avec Christine

Hi Everyone, it's Christine here with a Christmas card, I thought I would try and inspire you to get into the Christmas spirit some over the next few weeks.
I stamped my ornament image using Versafine Claire and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I used pencils to colour the ornaments and then added a little Wink of Stella to make them sparkle (it's hard to see in the photos). 
I masked the ornament frame and blended the background then used the diamond stencils to add some depth of colour. I used some white pencil to highlight some of the diamonds. The stencilling adds so much depth to the image.

I hope this has encouraged you to start making your Christmas cards.

Just amazing the depth you achieve with your one layer backgrounds. Adding the layers of colours and highlights to this fabulous diamond stencil creates the look of so much dimension. Perfect with your framed Christmas ornaments!
