More Distress Oxide Trees

Hiya! I am completely obsessed with Distress Oxides! I have been making backgrounds with different colour combinations, using the watercolour smooshing technique, then spritzing with Glimmer Mist. I stamp the trees onto the backgrounds and fussy cut them out. After gluing them to the cards, I have added detail with a glitter pen and some Nuvo Drops.

Here are a few I have made:

I was sure I'd commented on your gorgeous trees earlier, but apparently not! Likely I was so bedazzled by their beauty that I plum forgot! At any rate, here now, for second helpings of gazing, admiring, oohing and ahhing over your whimsical forests! LOVE these trees in all their splendid versions! So thrilled that you shared these pretties in the UNIKO gallery!
