Susan's one layer challenge this week is to use a tree on your card. I decided to play around with my Trendy Trees set. This card turned out very different than what was in my head when I started. And sometimes that is a good thing!
Once again I was playing around with my images on a piece of scrap paper (can you say AR/OCD?), and an even better idea came to me. I was originally going to stamp the ground shadow stamp in green, but once I practice stamped it with the tree trunks in place, I had the idea to make a fall card with different colored leaves on the trees, and the ground covered with fallen leaves.
Tip: If you want to add interest to an otherwise plain looking card, do something with the corners. Here, I rounded opposite corners of the card to mimic the curve of the ground stamp. It really ties things together and makes the card more interesting.
Stamps - trendy trees, Hero Arts shadow stamp, Stampendous sentiment
Paper - GKD PL white
Ink - chocolate chip, cajun craze
Accessories - cajun craze, daffodil, pumpkin, olive, pear pizzaz, riding hood red markers, taffeta ribbon, corner rounder punch
I must be longing for the fall weather because those are the types of cards I have been thinking about making lately. I can't wait for the cool, crisp, good sleeping weather nights.
