Trees....

have lost all their leaves now, but locally they looked very glittery with frost as I got home tonight. Trees is the theme over at Gothic Arches this week and for my arch I stamped a winter tree in white chalk eye over the background and added white pen to the ground, I then white embossed the top tree on a mini arch and layered on top of the larger one and finished it all by adding some ice stickles to make it shimmer, just like the trees in my garden!

I love taking a walk at night in the winter and looking at the trees. This just captured the look of the lovelies in the cold winter nights.

What an unusual and beautiful approach to this week's challenge. I love your bare, frosty trees and I especially like the fact that you have included an arch within an arch. So creative!
