For those of us who've ever shopped with Stampin' Up!, that one's pretty easy: use the Lovely As A Tree stamp set. I think some Demos might have heart palpitations if this set ever retires.
So, of course I pulled out my LAAT set and used one of the stamps - the Oak Tree. I knew exactly which sentiment I'd use with it, too. Here she is:
Now about that tree... I stamped it on a scrap of white card stock and colored it with Copics. When I was done coloring I felt it had lost some of the detail, so I broke out my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, lined up the image, and stamped over the colored tree to add back all the detail. I love how that turned out!
I also fell back to my old ways of layering everything, which is okay for this card, as the tree and sentiment would disappear into the wood background without the dark brown contrast of the layers. I guess I've still got all that "I must layer everything" history back in my internal archive, and I think it all works here.
In addition to the oldoldold stamp set (the label says 2001), I also used two eyelets on the sentiment panel. (I KNOW!) Talk about old-school.
So, I think you should play along with us this week. Go dig out a neglected tree stamp, use it, and come link us up. You know you want to ... :)
Thanks for stopping by!
