Thinking of You Trees


Card/Paper: Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, water colour paper for image
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Versamark, Not Quite Navy, Old Olive
Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Sincere Salutations, Canvas Background Stamp
Other: Cuttlebug Forest Branches folder, clear embossing powder


I inked up the tree stamp first with Versamark, and then with Chocolate Chip ink. Stamped onto water colour paper and then embossed with clear powder. I used an Aquabrush to paint the grass and sky using Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, and Not Quite Navy ink. As the embossing over the trees wasn't perfect, the brush picked up tiny amounts of the Chocolate Chip, and turned it to purplish hues mixed with the blue of the sky - quite accidental, but turned out fairly effective!

Matted the image onto Chocolate Chip, and then mounted onto Creamy Caramel embossed on one side with the Forest Branches folder, and stamped with a greeting from Sincere Salutations in Chocolate Chip ink. Card base of Chocolate Chip stamped with the Canvas Background stamp in Chocolate Chip ink.

very pretty, love the coloring of the sky and ground, I just love how you only embossed a certain part!

The embossing on only one side is so effective. This is a lovely card and so beautifully coloured.
