Pink & Silver Glitter Trees

Hello, thank you for stopping by my blog.

I will probably really date myself here but when I was a kid I remember seeing artificial Christmas trees in silver and then you would decorate them with pink ornaments.  My trees are sort of the opposite of that idea.  I mixed the ultrafine transparent glitter with some silver glitter to coat each tree.

The other day I was wasting time and strolled through some antique shops in the area.  A lot of the items they call antiques are things I remember having as a kid.  I always thought to call something an antique it had to be at least 100 years old.   That must make me really old, ha ha.

Materials:
Dee's Distinctively - Alpine Small & Alpine Large Tree
Impression Obsession - Santa Sled & Icicles
Papertrey Ink - In the Meadow die set (2)
Art Glitter designer dries clear glue & Crystal 85 ultrafine transparent glitter.
Silver Glitter

  1. Using pink for the trees is a surprising and original choice, but it works so well! Beautiful card!

  3. Wow, how different - pink trees, they look great though, especially with the silver. Great layers and a lovely Santa with sleigh which also looks great in the black.

  6. Fun idea to reverse the colours on your very dimensional tree. Love the black silhouette die cut, adds drama x

  7. A very pretty design - love the pink trees and the black silhouette. I can relate to feeling 'antique' these days! I'd rather use the words, 'a good vintage'! haha! Hope your week is lovely. xx Karen

  9. What a great colour combination this is. Love your scene. Yep, things that I remember from my childhood are now vintage, not even retro anymore. Where did the time go?

  12. My husband's Aunt had a tree like that, love the pink touch to this and of course the sparkle! I agree, I have started to see things that we had as kids in Antique shops, and the oldies music is now what I listened to, it's a weird feeling that's for sure :)

  16. A trip down memory lane indeed. I can remember the silver tinsel trees but not the pink decorations. Some of the games we payed as children have made it into the antique shops. Anything over 50 yrs and its ancient.!! I love your decorated trees. Very festive. Hugs Mrs A.

  17. That is pretty. I do remember those silver tinsel trees... I thought they were beuatiful when I was a child. Now trees are so realistic that it is hard to tell them apart from a real one. Times have changed
