Tree in burlap

Hey everyone! I'd stamped up a few of these tree's up and had them colored and ready to be make into cards, when I saw this weeks Freshly Made Sketch.

I just had to tweak the sketch a bit to make it work!

The little tree stamp is from Plum Purdy that I've had in my Christmas stamp stash for a while now. I sure wish that she would make more of her paintings into stamps. They are sooo cute.

I stamped it in Versafine ink and heat embossed it using clear embossing powder so that I could color the sack. In my mind it's burlap and used E31, E35 and E37 Copic's to color. Added a bit of clear wink of Stella glitter to the star that I colored using Y21. 

Black scrappers floss used to tie the bow. The bottom scallop was cut out using the smallest die from Lifestyle crafts on a canvas like material. Then using E37, I colored it to match the bag. The embossing folder is from Taylored Expressions aptly named burlap. Sentiment is from PTI and was stamped prior to running the kraft cardstock through the cuttlebug. I can't believe how well it lined up on the first try!

Well, that is it for today. Thanks for stopping by!
