In the trees

This card has a lot of ink but only one stamp you see it?  the bird landing on the horizon.  did use a couple of stencils and that birch trees die.  did a trick I saw on Jennifer McGuire blog where you die cut a delicate die and glue four of them together to make them stronger so that is what I did on this card.  Also used a lot of post it notes to create the moon, hills and horizon then added some self sticking gems.  I think this would make a good masculine card or winter card...what do you think?

stamps - Memory Box bird
die - Memory Box birch trees
inks - Ranger adirondack stonewash, demin and Ranger distress black soot

  2. You've created a lovely scene, looking through the trees at the bird, and the bird looks great against your masked and inked background. Thanks for sharing at ATSM, Anita x

  3. Really pretty! I love the masking and layering you have done for your backgrounds. The trees really pop the way you layered them up too. Thanks for playing along at ATSM. :)
