Evergreen Christmas

Using the Yvonne Albritton marbled shadow stamps
and a Hero Arts long needled pine branch
an easy Christmas card can be created.

First the pine bough image was
stamped with the darkest green ink that 
I had.

I used three different colors of green Ranger
Distressed Inks.  For the darker shades the
stamp was inked, the image stamped onto 
scratch paper and then stamped 
over the pine bough.

The finished image was them
layered over two shades of dark
and then light green paper.
The Merry Christmas was computer
generated using PSP X and layered
over dark green card stock.
Flat pieces of paper egg carton were
used under the phrase to create the
3-D effect.
