Today, I am using the gorgeous Oh Christmas Tree stamp set. I started by using my Distress inks to blend a night sky. I masked off the bottom half of my card. I then masked the top half and used some more Distress inks for the bottom half. 

I then stamped my trees in black ink and then used the gorgeous swirly tree image to stamp over my black trees in silver. I added some stars from the Happy Hello set stamped in silver ink. The sentiment is from last year's gorgeous Scandi Christmas set.


Here is a close up of the products I used today from Clearly Whimsy Stamps.




Here is a complete list of those participating in today's hop.

Oh wow! This is so pretty, Alanna! I like that you masked off the upper and lower parts of the card and added some water to the top for the night sky. The metallic ink really shines. Well done! :)

I wouldn't have thought of using the whirling tree stamp in silver after already stamping the tree. Thank you for the wonderful idea.
