Bloom Where You Are Planted
I have another card to share with everyone today using Market Street Stamps. This card is was sort of an experiment, but I am super happy with the results. So the part I experimented with was the tree. I used the Of The Same Tree stamp set for the tree. I inked the top of the tree stamp with two different shades of green in random spots, then stamped it. I then re-inked the stamp and lined it up with the previously stamped image, then stamped on top of it. I repeated this a couple more times to create layers of color on the tree. I did the same technique with the trunk of the tree too, I just used brown ink. After all the pieces were inked, I cut out the top of the tree then attached it to the trunk. I used the Sure Miss You stamp set for the face. The sentiment is from the Homegrown stamp set. The background is the Lost Garden stamp set. I finally accessorized the tree with tiny heart buttons. I hope you enjoy my card!
