Sheltering Tree - Thankful For You

Wednesday, June 10, 2015

For this card I was intrigued with a card created by Tanya Boser and found on Pinterest. I was drawn to it and wanted to try it out, and changed it just a little by adding the Always Artichoke cardstock.

I whitewashed a piece of Crumb Cake, building up a layer brushing horizontally, and another vertically. I then took a dry brush picking up a little Crumb Cake from the ink pad, and with a gentle touch brushed a stroke here and there.

I like how when completed, the trees look a little like Poplars.

After the whitewashing I blow dried it with my heat tool and then stamped and heat embossed the trees. Then I stamped the leaves without re inking the stamp for each tree.

I then cut 3/4" out of the image and after heat embossing the sentiment on Always Artichoke, attached the image as seen here.


It's always fun to try out something a little different and new. I can't help but wonder what it would look like using different greens or even different colours! Are you inspired to try something like this?

Thank you for stopping by today. Hope your day is a lovely one.

Happy stamping!
