The Yin Yang leaves & the symbol were hand drawn using a Whispers Brush Marker; the symbol's circular shape being obtained using a small punch.
The white tree was wet embossed onto dark green cardstock using the VersaMarker watermark pen & white embossing powder whereas the dark green tree was wet embossed onto white cardstock using VersaFine Olympia Green & clear embossing powder. Each tree was cut out (giving a whole new meaning to the term of "fussy cutting") & mounted onto a scalloped circle of the appropriate colour cardstock. I was really pleased with the dimension, shine & contrast achieved which can be seen in the following angled photographs.
