Merry Christmas in Winter Woods - Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge #167

This is my first time entering a challenge at Stamp, Ink, Paper.

The challenge this week is to use a large sentiment on my card.  Since I was making cards using the Winter Woods stamp set for a display board for my Open House, I used this card and added one of the new Merry Christmas Thinlet dies on it.

I used the color layering technique to color the trees and I just love the effect.  To do this the Stamparatus is required, as well as a number of different colors of green and brown SU markers. Thanks to Patty Bennett for showing me this technique.

Once the trees were colored, I die cut the word "Merry" from the Christmas Thinlet die collection in gold foil paper and adhered it over top of the trees.  The smaller word "Christmas" is from "Holly Jolly Greetings".  It was gold embossed  and  die cut using a framelit included with the Merry Christmas thinlets.

This 3 3/4 by 5" Whisper White art piece was adhered to a 4 by 5 1/4" piece of Gold Foil card stock, and then added to a Mossy Meadow base.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Winter Woods, Holly Jolly Greetings
Inks:  SU Markers:  Mint Macaron, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Mossy Meadow, Cajun Craze, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Versa Mark
Papers:  Mossy Meadow, Gold Foil, Whisper White
Accessories:  Stamparatus, Merry Christmas Thinlet dies, Gold Embossing Powder
