At last I have my two 'Tree' cards for the Twofer Card Challenge #6 - Trees. I have so ummd and arrrd about which tree to use and somewhere out of the blue this morning I thought of just making a little scene with one tree and then while making that card the idea came to make a card using my tree to depict the four seasons.
I used Distress Inks to watercolour my little lake scene before stamping on my tree and sponging in the foliage.... I wanted a soft peaceful scene to go with my 'thinking of you' sentiment which I stamped and embossed on a green back panel to frame my little scene.
For my second card I used a postage stamp die to cut four units and then decided to raise my frames so cut an extra two for each frame and glued these together. I used the center piece to stamp my tree image and then masked and sponged in my four seasons colours. The tricky part was lining up and attaching my four finished stamps. Lastly I stamped and embossed my sentiment.
I am also using this card for the Just Add Ink challenge #414 - Add a Window/Frame. Thanks for visiting and enjoy your weekend.
