In The Woods

Here is the last of my VSN cards from a few weeks ago. I used images from The Giving Tree for this one.

Here is the inside. I stamped the tree with Memento Rich Cocoa, but stamped off once before stamping on the card. The sentiment is from Fanciful Fall.

To start, I masked the top of my Kraft card base, using torn sticky notes.

Moved the mask and sponged a little more.

I stamped the tree using Stazon Jet Black ink. Then I used an opaque white gel pen to add some snowy highlights to the branches.

Stamped the snowflakes, also from The Giving Tree, using white ink.

For the sentiment layer, I cut Pure Luxury Ivory card stock, using Spellbinders Labels 4 Nestabilities and sponged while still in the die, with Memento Desert Sand ink.

Then sponged Memento Rich Cocoa.

I stamped the sentiment with Stazon Jet Black and adhered it to the card using Pop Dots. I also added a shadow for the tree, using Copics. I think I used W3 for that, but I didn't get a photo.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope your day is fabulous!

Lovely card Theresa, I have made a few of your examples recently and was so happy with the finished product, your "In the Mist" card I made for a thank you for my recently passed away Brother in laws funeral cards. He was an avid outdoors man and such so i thought he would smile from up above at his Thank you cards. So thanks for the great tutorials you put on your blog, you are so talented and I love your work!!!

Thanks
Donna

I was wondering....how do you come up with all of these amazing designs? you are so creative...it takes me as long to decide what I want to create as it does to create the card and you seem to make an amazing card everyday.
