KLM Digital Designs - Christmas Globe

Morning everyone!  Loving the extra hour of sleep; how about you?

Here's a card I made with one of the new November images released by KLM Digital Designs.  It is called Christmas Globe.  I recently saw a video tutorial on Beate's blog, Fresh and Fun, called Acetate and Tissue.  I loved the look she achieved and wanted to give it a try.  Be sure to check out the wonderful tutorial on Beate's blog!

My card attempts a modified version of this technique.  Here's what I did:
Image was printed  twice -- once on PTI select white; then I reversed the image and printed it on a transparency so that I could cut out the globe part and overlay it over the image printed on cardstock.   
Coloring of the trees was done directly on the acetate.  Then I added Glossy Accents, bashful blue reinker and dazzling diamonds around the trees before flipping the image over and adhering it to my PTI white layer. The base of the snow globe was colored with Copics. 

Have a great week and please come back and visit! 

Supplies:  Digital Stamps - Christmas Globe by KLM Digital Designs; Paper - PTI select white, SU! brilliant blue, kiwi kiss, DP from my scrap bin; Ink - Copic Markes, SU! bashful blue reinker; Accessories - EK Success snowflake punch, Nestabilities, ribbon from Mikes, button from my stash, rhinestones, 3M transparency for inkjet printers, dazzling diamonds.
