Lovely as a Tree

Good Monday Morning. This brayered background is a technique that has been around for ages. I was itching to try this technique and finally got around to purchasing a Kaleidacolor stamp pad. Trees are from the Lovely As a Tree set that I purchased four years ago, and never got around to using. Isn't that crazy? The moon was created by using a circle punch on yellow paper. Moon was adhered to cardstock with sticky tabs. Trees were stamped with black Stazon. "Happiness Always", from the Happy Harmony set, was stamped with black Stazon as well. Have a great day, and thank you for stopping by.

Hi, totally love your bird card! It's perfect! And.....don't be sad for not making it into the CHF DT, just try again later!! There are a lot of DT calls you can find on the internet. And enjoy my stamps, I really like it very much that you took them!!

Wow Beth! The colors are stunning. Yup, it's an old technique but a fabulous one! It's one of the easiest yet loveliest technique around! Great job on your card! I love it.

A beautiful combo of one of my all-time favorite stamp sets and a terrific background technique. It may be old news to many of you, but it's new to me. Love it!
