From Little Acorns...

Another 2 stamps from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set by Stampin Up, I used one (the leaf) to make a background and the other ( the oak tree) as a main focal point.
A bit of matting and layering some patterned paper a ribbon and a couple of brads to finish the card.


Attention to detail...

After stamping the image with a water based inks, I took a damp paint brush and lightly blended the tree and shadow underneath it. It gives the impression of a watercolour painting.



Talking of little acorns Lauren stopped by with Jack, he was 3 weeks old on Thursday.
Jack was weighed and he is now 9Lb 11oz he's a Hungry Horace and loves his tucker.
Grandad took him out for a walk and on his way back he popped to the cemetery and introduced young Jack to my Dad Great Grandad Jack, I thought that was so sweet of him.
He said he was talking away to them both much to a ladies amazement who was there visiting a loved one.
