A tree made of trees

I'm back today with this card made for Skull and Cross Buns. I just can't get enough of the new christmas goodies this year.

For this card I made a christmas tree out of christmas trees using the Christmas geometric tree stencil. I masked it of to just reveal a large tree shaped triangle and dabbed green distress oxcide ink through the stencil. After removing the stencil I masked off the triangle shape and ink brushed a light layer of green on the vrest of the triangle as well. I used the Stars and sparkles stencil to create the star on the top of the tree and created a thick layer of gold stickles glitter glue through the stencil.

After the star and tree had dried I masked the edges of the tree and ink brushed a light blue on the top part of the card panel leaving a white area around the star to make it appear to glow. I also ink brushed a couple of brown colors on the bottom part of the panel to suggest the ground or maybe a wooden floor.

I then drew on a tree trunk using my copic markers and stamped and colored a few christmas presents using the stamps from the "Santa's workshop" stamp set to lay around the tree. I also glued on a few wooden stars and decorated the tree using gold stickles glitter glue.

To finish the card I stamped the sentiment from the "Quirky sentiments" stamp set in dark brown and mounted the whole panel on a craft card base.

I am submitting this card to the following challenges:
