Wordy Tree

It's Merry Monday time and this week Susan has challenged us to use a Christmas word and decorate each letter.

Well this proved to be a tough challenge for me, and after looking through all my available stamps, I ended up at the eleventh hour searching through the Silhouette Online Store to find something remotely suitable and came up with this:

This file was cut from Basic Black cardstock and painted with Wink of Stella for a bit of shimmer.  Now, stupidly, I packed away all my gold and silver glimmer paper, so my only option was to silver emboss some cardstock and cut a couple of thin panels and a star cut from the Holiday Collections framelits - my only available star!  Here's a closer look at the shimmer of that fantastic Wink of Stella pen.

Hope you enjoy the different and wonderful interpretations of the design team and challenge yourself to give it a go!

Thanks for looking.

Products used:

Ink:  Versamark
Cardstock:  Basic Black, Whisper White
Accessories:  Silver EP, Silhouette cut file, Silhouette Cameo, Holiday Collection framelit, Wink of Stella
