Why not have a yellow tree

I love using a color combination challenge to create with.
 Here I used the Colour Q combo to create a Christmas card.  It really made for a fun out-of-the-box card.
 I used a tree stamp from Tim Holtz.  The stamp has four trees on it.  I inked the stamp with different colors of Distress Stain, stamped that on a piece of watercolor paper that was spritzed with water first.  This always gives a watercolor look to the stamped image.  I just stamped that stamp a few times.  I added color and pattern to the corners with a dot stencil.  The sentiment is from a stamp set by Simon Says Stamp. 
Here is the Colour Q challenge with a super cute imspiration piece.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
