Funky Tree

Tonight is the launch of Leonie's exciting new range of products on HOCHANDA.  The first live show was at 8 pm and there will be lots more tomorrow at 9 am, 12 Noon, 4 pm and the Final Call at 7 pm.

If you miss any of the live broadcasts you can catch up by going to the website and use the Rewind option to see Leonie's demonstrations.

This collection of Dies, Embossing Folders and Stamps have been really fun to work with and I had to stop myself from using the Funky Tree stamp as it is truly addictive!

The card I am sharing with you tonight is one of my DT Samples using - yes, you have a guessed it - the Funky Tree stamp!  I have also thrown in a bit of die cutting using letters from the Typography alphabet.

I have started by creating two panels, mat and layered onto green and black cardstock.  On one of the white panels I have stamped the entire tree in black Versafine and heat embossed with clear powder.  For the second panel I have masked part of the tree, stamped the overhanging 'foliage' and once again embossed with clear powder.  The colouring has been done with alcohol markers and glossy accents added to the foliage and tree trunk.

To complete the card I have stamped the word 'Life' from the stamp set and die cut letters to make the words 'Tree of' from the Typography alphabet.

I was in a bit of a dilemma as to which photo to post as one shows the rich colours I have used but doesn't show the glossy accents and the other is all shine but the colour is bleached out.  So, here you go.......have one of each! 

If you get chance, please check out some of the fabulous samples on the rest of the design team blogs.

I will be back tomorrow with another sample from this range.  I hope you can join me.

Thanks for visiting me today.
Bye for now
