The tree is colored with markers (so is the little guy hanging from it). I wanted to add some texture to the tree so I colored it all (except the leaves) with Crumb Cake then went over it with some Baked Brown Sugar. Not covering the whole tree just bits and pieces here and there. The Crumb Cake still comes through but it's a little darker is some spots which gives nice shading and texture as a real tree would have. I did the same thing with the leaves but used my Pear Pizazz and new Mossy Meadow markers for that. So cute!!!! Even though this is a hostess set you can shop online and get it free!! Did you know that when your online order reaches $150 you qualify for hostess benefits, that includes hostess only sets!! You can shop the new catalog right now at my online store!! When you order online use this hostess code GBCJXJYU and I'll mail you a kit to make 2 cards from the new catalog!!
