Season's Greetings!

Hello folks,

I am lucky enough to be off work now until after Christmas, so I am catching up with some housework and decorating for Christmas.  I am so glad it is the longest day today, it seems to have been dark all day, I am always pleased to see it getting lighter again!

Today's card is another one I did using Jaynes' Christmas scenes.  I love this winter hedgerow.

I did the background first and added the colour using my petite gel press circle.
I added two colours to the plate then gently touched over it with scrunched tissue then pressed on to the card, I kept repeating this, overlapping the circles, until I was happy with what I'd got.
I stamped everything in place, then took a bit of the colour out of the trees and shrubs by adding water and blotting.
When it was all dry, I used a white gel pen tp add all the white bits, I also darkened the hedge a bit to put it behind the trees.  I matted it on matching card and it was done!  I don't think I added any glitter, but that would obviously work well with this.
Stamps used:

I hope your Christmas prep is going well!!
