A very firry Christmas!

Apologies for being late today - Christmas Eve somewhat distracted me!

A quick share, then, of another Funkie Junkie inspired tag in the festive spirit... and this one's all about the fir trees: fir branch stamps, colour (Iced Spruce), wood look frame and some pinecone embellishments!
My Father Christmas is from my favourite Snowy Woods plate...
... as are the lovely fir branches in the background...
... and the fabulously-fonted sentiment.
My flower had a coat of gesso and spritzes of various white inks to mute the yellow colour.
And the pinecones got a touch of snowy gesso too, while the holly leaves - cut from patterned paper - were inked with Gathered Twigs.
I'm very happy with the dimension on this one, and the natural colour palette.
Apologies again for the tardy posting... though I hope most of you are far too caught up in festive preparations or celebrations to mind, or even to notice!!

There's still time over the Christmas break to enter this month's Referral Program with your Artistic Outpost projects, but for now: Merry Christmas to all!

Designer: Alison Bomber
