Summer Oak



Ingredients:

Card/Paper: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Water Colour Paper.
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Creamy Caramel, Certainly Celery, Versamark
Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Sincere Salutations
Other: Linen Thread, Pearl Brads, Stampin' Pastels, Clear Embossing Powder, Blender Pen

Method:

Inked up the oak tree and oak leaves stamps with Versamark, then immediately with Chocolate Chip. Stamped onto water colour paper, then embossed with clear embossing powder. Coloured in with green ink using blender pen. Coloured tree trunk with chocolate chip and another brown that I can't remember! Chalked a background for the tree with Stampin' Pastels. Cut out the leaves. Used 1/2" circle punch to punch the corners of the oak image. Matted onto Chocolate Chip, then Old Olive. Wrapped linen thread around the Old Olive. Painted brads with brown permanent marker to match, and inserted in corners.

For the background I stamped Very Vanilla Card with the oak leaf stamp in Creamy Caramel. Before stamping each leaf image, I stamped off once on scrap paper to get a fainter image for the background. Chalked over lightly with Creamy Caramel pastel to dull down the vanilla. Used Stampamajig to stamp greeting in Chocolate Chip. Matted onto Chocolate Chip card. Placed image topper in position and added leaves on foam pads. All on an A6 Very Vanilla card.
