A blue Christmas, well blue and silver really.  And you already know I like simple...  and you might have guessed I really like smooshing.

The background is matt metallic silver paper.  For the tree, I coloured white card using smooshed distress inks, then embossed it before adding silver Glimmermist.  This meant it collected in the nooks and is quite subtle.  Then trimmed it to a tree shape, inked the edges and raised on 3D foam.
