Natural Beauty & Lovely as a Tree Card
Hi there! Here I am again using another retired stamp. I'm so sorry, but I really love this set, it's an oldie, but a goodie!!! All products are Stampin Up, with the exception of the "with sympathy" stamp, that I got at Micahels 1.50 bin. I started out with Handsome Hunter for my card base, and stamped the Weathered background in the same HH color. The next layer is Creamy Caramel, followed with a layer of Very Vanilla, which I added an antiqued silver brad in each corner. I stamped the retired background stamp, Fine Lace, and also the ferns, in Handsome Hunter. Then, I added a large oval in Close to Cocoa. I then made a little smaller oval and stamped Lovely as a Tree in Close to Cocoa, I stamped my sentiments in Chocolate Chip.
Next, I watercolored the bird and branch, as well as the butterfly with my Aqua Brush and Watercolor Crayons. I love using them!! Andddddddd wa-laaaaaaaaa!!! A finished card!!
I like the way this came out. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think of it. I'm always interested in your opinion and thoughts. Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate you taking the time. Take care and I hope you get a chance to stamp today.
