I found some gorgeous green leaves in my yard (tulip poplar, oak and redbud) that were in fabulous shape. Acrylic paint was applied to them then stamped onto mixed media cardstock. All I did was change the sentiment to fit the recipient. This one was is from Studio 490.
This is one of my favorite Stampin' Up sets. I colored the image with distress markers, huffed hot air (I have plenty! lol) then stamped onto mixed media cardstock. The tree needed to be grounded but wasn't happy with my drawing a line or anything similar. This is a narrow embossing folder that I carefully inked up and stamped at the base of the tree. Yep, just what it needed. And the extra swirly bits break up the monotony of a straight line.
Guess I'd better make a few more so I'm not caught unprepared...although I do hope next week isn't a repeat!
