Dream Tree Wishes

Hello! The CAS challenge at SCS this week is an inspiration challenge. I chose this photo from the inspiration site for my single layer card. The tree I used is from Growing in Unity from Unity Stamp Co. There is a larger version available as a single also.

To start, I created a mask by cutting a rectangle from a piece of scratch paper, using Nestabilities.

I put re-positionable tape on the mask and placed it on my Pure Luxury Heavy Weight White cardbase. Then I sponged very lightly with Memento Lulu Lavender ink.

Then I added a 1 1/4 inch circle mask and sponged Lulu Lavender again.

Sponged Memento Grape Jelly.

Sponged Memento Paris Dusk.

Stamped the dream tree using Stazon Black ink.

I added a sentiment from Tag Lines (Gina K), then added a few score lines.

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you have a great day!

BEAUTIFUL tree and the color is brilliant! I want that stamp for me and my daughter. She wants to tattoo it and illustrate the four seasons on the tree! I know my daughter is well how do you say it! Hmmm!!

This is awesome. I am sometimes at a lost with what to do with the larger solid images like that tree and never thought of doing something like that. The black tree on the purple is absolutely stunning.
