Tree of Shirts

This is a shop window in Zurich of a clothes shop.
I loved the way they created their tree out of tiny little folded shirts and teddy bears.

This card has been in our shop for our while and so many people have asked me how to create this look.
If you are reading this Brenda perhaps you could enlighten us

Brenda has replied to let me know:
The base piece was randomly distressed with three Distress colours (lemonade, lilac and peacock feathers) and spritzed with glimmer mist (pearl I imagine) to bleed and blend the colours a little. I then use a black pen to create the individual sections (all random and you can't really do this bit wrong), then I mask the sections one by one to stamp with black ink.

Swarovski Christmas Tree

This tree is in the Christmas Market in Zurich, if you zoom in you can see each one of those ribbons has a Swarovski Snowflake on the end - it is breathtaking.

Thatched House with AquaMarkers

Lesley coloured our Thatched House using Aquamarkers and a combination of taking colour from a palette and taking the pens direct and using a waterbrush.

Poppies with Pan Pastels

This is one of the cards I made on C&C last week using our Poppies and colouring with Pan Pastels and a paper stump.  For the red background I stamped the same poppies in Versamark and covered with Pan Patels.
