Moving Along with the Times - Trees

Stampin' Up! Lovely as a Tree

Today is the start of a new challenge at Moving Along With The Times. Our challenge theme is Trees.  Come and join in as I know many of you will have some kind of tree stamp, punch or other way of creating a tree for your project.

Stampin' Up! Lovely as a Tree is a timeless classic stamp set and I've used it here on a piece of watercolour paper that I had handy when I had excess ink on an aqua painter brush and didn't want to waste it so I did a very simple colour wash on the small square of paper about 3" square.  I let it dry after washing a couple of times and kept it in a safe place.  The 'safe place' is key as if you are anything like me you put things away so safe you can never find them!  

Onto the colour wash I stamped part of the longer border type stamp from the set using a post it note to mask off the part of the stamp I didn't want to use whilst I inked it, discarding it before I actually stamped.  I used a stamp-a-ma-jig to position the second layer of stamping in versa mark so that I could add some sadly retired heat and stick powder and then glitter.  You'll see I offset the glitter layer in order for the shadow layer in black to show.

I'ves layered with basic black, island indigo (the wash colour) and silver foil card off setting the final two layers.  A sentiment from Stampin' Up! Watercolour Christmas and some basic rhinestones and it makes an elegant but striking card.  Oh and I mustn't forget the black bakers twine bow attaching the gorgeous mistletoe sprig from the Stampin' Up! Year of Cheer Suite embellishments.

Join us HERE for our MAWTT challenge and do come visit me again.
