A fairytale prize

Today I've received this waterfall card set as a prize for winning Fairytale challenge 3:

Oh, I've just opened the package and discovered that it's not just one design, but there are three different ones.

I look forward to making these. Isn't it strange that I haven't made any waterfall cards for ages and it was only the other day that I made four Christmas ones. Now I've got some more to make - yay!

CHNC challenge 3: let's see some trees

Over on my Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge blog it's time for challenge 3 which is 'let's see some trees' - decorated Christmas trees - indoors or outside - bare winter trees, snowy trees, whatever. They can be stamped, a digi, embossed, painted ... use whatever medium you like ... or find a freebie or recycled element that features a tree. Of course, the end result must be a Christmas card. You will find all the information here - I would love you to join in my challenge.

I've used a Webster paper from the 'waiting for Santa' pack and also a piece of BG jovial. I covered a piece of chipboard with blue and green acrylic paint and then used white acrylic paint with my Inkaddinkadoo trees stamp, adding some white at the base of the trees. The trees stamped a bit suidgy, but I left it as I thought it looked even more smmowy with a bit of dimension.

As I said on my challenge blog, I used acrylic paint because that's the topic for this week's challenge on Jingle Belles and I'm trying to support them as they are also a new Christmas crafting blog, so I'm entering this card for their challenge. I'm also entering Frosted designs challenge, which this week is to use paint.

I used the sketch for CPS 200, so I'm linking for that:
