Lovely as a tree

I've teamed my paper pack with the beautiful Lovely as a tree stamp set, I thought just because it co-ordinates with one stamp set doesn't mean you can't put it with another.
This set is great, so versatile, I've used it for Christmas cards, men's cards, sympathy cards, all sorts, the possibilities are endless.

Today I've made a feminine card with it, using the colours Rich razzleberry and Certainly celery.



There's still a little bit of the Cottage garden set, I hadn't inked up the tag stamp yet, and I thought that the card was missing something without it.
To get the two-toned look on the tree I first stamped the image in Chocolate chip ink, then using a blender pen I went over some of the darker areas on make them slightly larger. Then with the Old olive ink pad closed I squeezed it gently so that some ink was left on the lid, and again used the blender pen to fill in the gaps in the tree. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.

Here's the recipe
Stamps, Lovely as a tree, Cottage garden
Paper, Cottage Wall (retired), Rich razzleberry CS, Certainly celery CS, Very vanilla CS

Oooh, great card Kelly, Lovely As a Tree is a must have set I'd have to say. The papers in the Cottage Wall pack are quite varied and suit different styles of stamps. You're really highlighting that with your cards, well done!
