Beauty in Nature

Let’s see - so far with the previews from Innovative Stamp Creations I’ve shown you flowers, birds and a wooded scene… Well a release of nature images would not be complete without a beautiful Mighty Maple image.

Beauty in Nature:

This image sheets comes with the Maple Tree in three sizes. On this card I used the large and the medium trees.

A little about this card - the background was created first by clear embossing the tree image on vanilla card stock, misting, allow to dry, wipe the mist off of the embossed tree with paper towel. Then sponge green on the tree and brown around the edges. The smaller tree was marker water colored. Sewing, some hardware and distressing and ta-da…..

TIP - when I use mists I always start with the lightest color first and then work into the darker values.

Well I have a bit of a mess to clean up today - I’ll be back with more on that later…

Thanks for the visit!
