A Festive Noel

This is a whimsical card featuring one of the Hero Arts bottle brush trees from the Family & Friends set.  I used Festive Berries Distress inks to color wash a couple pieces of Ranger watercolor paper and allowed them to air dry.  I used Hero Arts white embossing powder to stamp on a dry water colored piece and then trimmed around it with my scissors.  I then used Ranger Multi Medium Matte to glue down a variety of sequins.  In the meantime I had stamped and white embossed the packages from an Essentials by Ellen set all over a piece of water color card stock.  I washed a variety of colors over them.  I ended up choosing the green packages only to use on this card.  I used foam tape to pop up the tree and one of the packages.
