The Little Distressed Tree~
Hope you are all having a good day. Unfortunatly here the nice weather has NOT returned and it is raining again, I cannot believe it, I thought we would see an improvement in August...
I have been quite busy, but made this card before bed last night, so have finally been able to post it now.
Although I love the distressed look, I have never classed myself as very good at it.
I must admit, looking at other people's work has given me the inspiration and tips in order to have a good go at it.
I am actually quite pleased with this card, even though it does not contain a small person of some sort!!
I love this Hobbyart "Open Tree" stamp, I find it useful for a Christmas image, a winter image and you can add gems to brighten it up too, really versatile.
I have used DCWV The Mariposa Stack. If you have never seen this stack you should take a look, it's amazing. If you like really ornate papers (well cardstock actually) with butterfly's and birdcages on, lots of flittering etc, then you will love them. They are perfect for the distressed look, I like to take a sheet and tear it up! It distresses brilliantly.
The large flower is hadmade using the drawn spiral method, I have used stickles to highlite it. The other flowers are from my stash. The leaf punch is a NS, and the border punch a MS.
