ATC's- "Trees"

 Our Jan ATC theme was trees.  I used a variety of backgrounds for my trees- having so much 'technique' fun!

On the Lt, the ATC is made using a chipboard tree from Sweet Stamps- Piccalo Accents. I covered it with enamel EP and it has flecks of gold in it. I placed it on a background and covered the edges with Stickles.

On the Rt is my 1-4-1 "drop card".  I used a Distress Ocide BG, added a portion of a die cut of a city scape, colored the house and trees. I added 'snow' on the trees using my white paint pen, then felt like it needed something, so added dots of snow with the paint pen and a full moon (It is the Blue Moon month after all).

On the Lt- the background is a gelly plate Background, used a tree die cut, I added dots of snow and snow on the tree with a white paint pen. I added Washi tape at the bottom.  I added a star at the top from retired SU sequins.

The Rt ATC is my favorite- I added a background of a magazine page wrinkled up, laid flat and covered with Gesso. I added the tree die cut, added pink heart sequins. I added punched hearts at the base from some retired SU DSP.

 These tree dies are unbranded. They are from a set of three. The one on the left is the largest one, I added it to a background using metallic paints. I added small ripped pieces of Washi and gold Stickles on top.
 The Rt side ATC has stickles on top. I used a Unity stamp (the honetcomb) and a strip of Washi on the bottom.

 The last two ATC's are using a Gelli plate background. I used the same tree die again, I just added Washi and heart sequins from the SU sequins I used the star from.

 I used a variety of backgrounds and used the small deer from a Gina K designs set- imported in to the scan and cut and cut it out from brown cardstock. I used glue distress, the magazing pape crinkled and gesso'ed, Glue resist x's 2 and a embossed and sanded (coordinations cardstock) technique.

Thanks for stopping by!
