Winter trees

Here is a card which I've made for a January birthday, very organised I hope you all agree. After Christmas I relax thinking 'phew that's all done and dusted.' Then whoa it's my Dad's birthday early in January and it  always takes me by surprise.

Is this a masculine card? I have no idea but I know he will like it as he is keen on tree skeletons. 
It's wintry but I've added a tiny bit of colour sponged on, so it's not too stark. 
I confess I'd planned to stamp the trees in dark green but picked up the wrong pad!
I've seen all these colours in the sunrises and sunsets in the last few weeks. Sadly this week has been rain and fog and barely a peep of sun. 

I've used:
Stamps from Creative Stamper magazine, 
Inks: Eggplant, sunshine, terracotta, lulu lavender, angel pink and black Archival.  

I'm linking this to Less is More. The challenge this week is Outlines. A lovely challenge with many possibilities. Oh, and it's one layer, I'm not scared!

  1. This is a super card! It really looks dimensional - very good masking/inking there - and the tree skeletons are so impactful in black that I think that was a good mistake! Thanks for playing along with us at Less is More :)

  2. Love this fun design! Super creative. Thanks for sharing at Less is More!

  3. WOW! What a clever and striking take on our challenge Alison, wonderful masking, delicate tones and using those trees as outlines is so inspiring too. Thanks for playing along with us at Less is More this week. Sarah x
