Flourishes Tree


This virtual stamp night challenge going on this weekend over on SCS was to make a card about something we collect. I am not sure exactly how many Hallmark ornaments I have, I've been collecting since about 1980. I think I may have replaced my ornament obsession with stamps since I can't afford to be so out of control with more than one thing at a time. I had this little ornament made up on a special order from Hallmark many years ago. Says it all...

O Christmas Tree is by Flourishes, colored in Copics. Icicles are embossed in Iridescent Ice (a little hard to see in pic). Star Dust Stickles added here and there along with a Sakura stardust gel pen.

Great inspiration. I know what you mean. Besides stamps, I also collect Drept. 56 pieces and that's gets crazy too! Nice job with the card. Love the coloring.

Joanne!!!! Love the card and the images!!!! I love the Hallmark ornaments. It is a tradition in our home for the kids to get a wrapped Hallmark ornament every Thanksgiving to open. They are getting a big collection of their very own. So, I guess they are collecting....lol!!!!
