Hi there. I needed a masculine birthday card and got out my Stampscape set called Nature Sheet 6 and decided to use this idea of a circle of trees with the sentiment in the centre.
I made a Brusho background using a Pixie Powder called Midnight Blue, and added some onto my glass mat and sprayed some water to activate it and then laid the card over to pick up the colour, and continued until I had covered the card. The colour was a bit strong so I sprayed some water onto the card and took up the excess with a piece of kitchen towel which did make it a bit softer so better for a background. I then stamped the sentiment in the centre using WOW Metallic Silver Embossing Powder and added the trees, first and second generation stamping, around the sentiment using Versafine Olympia Green. After I was finished I thought the blue could do with being a bit brighter so added some Salty Ocean Distress Ink behind the sentiment, and around the trees, and also decided to add some yellow like a sunny halo around the top of the trees using Mustard Seed DI. I added this to a 6" square white card.
Unfortunately the photo doesn't show up the sentiment very well, but it is fine in real life. Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope to see you again soon.
