Gothic Arch Challenge "Trees"

This week the Gothic Arch challenge was "Trees". I used alcohol inks to create the background and then stamped on Linda Luckin trees stamp and embossed in black. Used a toothbrush to create snow effect with Adirondack silver mixative ink. These were techniques used in Day 2 of Tim Holtz tags. Added a silver snowflake embellishment but it reminds me of a christmas star.

This is so pretty!! I love that you're using the ideas from Tim's challenges. I've been doing them too and can see lots of ways to incorporate his techniques into my stamping.
