Hello Friends,
Today's post is a reminder that you still have time to join us at OLCCC.  The Optional Twist is to Use the colour Green with Anything Goes and you could Win a Prize at the end of the month for using the Twist.  I created a little scene with the Evergreen Tree Stamps, stamping the green and when it was dry embossing in white to give them some dimension.  I used the Memory Box die cut to add the little house and trees drawing around the dies with a black Artline pen and then colouring the images in.  I masked the Sun and sponged some Tim Holtz Faded Jeans Distress Ink on for the sky and finished off with some Dazzling Diamonds on the Snow Banks and a Sentiment.

Supplies:
Stamps: S/U's Evergreen, Penny Black - Carolling Penguins
Card: White
Ink: Mossy Meadow, Versamark, Real Red, Black Artline Pen, Tim Holtz Faded Jeans Distress Ink
Finishing Touches: Dazzling Diamonds
