Pine at Night


Recipe:

Stamps- Stampin Up Lovely as a Tree, Wheel stamp Forever Flowers

Card - Navy 14.5 x 14.5cm finished base card, white 14 x 14cm

Ribbon - Navy Satin

Ink - Stampin Up Night of Navy

I inked the pine tree once and stamped it 3 times, this gives a distance appearance as if 2 of the trees are behind the brightest tree and makes it pop.

The moon was a circle punches from paper then laid over the white card and sponged over the top, then remove the white card circle to reveal a moon, I used the sponge technique around the top edge of the card too.

I inked the stamp wheel and run it across the base of the white card then with a damp paint brush shaded the flowers and leaves by catching the ink that had been stamped with the brush.

The ribbon tied into a bow around the card was the finishing touch.

FIEGEHENK - As Tombo markers are water based they will smudge so you will need to either be very careful, use a laser printer that is heat set, emboss the image with clear embossing powder the minute it comes out of your printer or use alcohol based markers.
