Bare Tree Cards

Darkroom Door - Monday, April 10, 2017

Hi there! It's Rachel Greig here today sharing two cards using the Bare Tree Eclectic Stamp



Instructions: 
1. Tear a piece of card stock that is a little wider than your white card stock. Punch a 1" circle from scrap card stock and temporarily adhere to the top right of your white card stock. 
2. Place the torn strip of card along the bottom of the white card stock and lightly sponge Broken China and Seedless Preserves Distress Ink along the torn edge. 
3. Move the torn card stock a little higher and sponge again, this time going over the entire piece of white card, including over the punched circle. Sponge a little darker around the edges to give the colour more depth. 
4. Take off the torn card stock and peel off the punched circle to reveal the moon. 
5. Place the torn card stock back onto the lower line where you sponged before and stamp the Bare Tree using Archival Jet Black ink pad. Stamp a sentiment from the Orchids Stamp set next to the tree. Use a white paint pen to light draw some snow onto the branches of the tree. 
6. Using an aquas brush, pick up a small amount of Iced Spruce Distress ink and light create a shadow of the tree in the foreground. 
7. Spritz some water into your hands and flick onto the background, allow to sit for a minute and then pat dry. 
8. Mount the stamped panel onto black card stock then onto a white card to complete!

I haven't done torn paper sponging in a decade and don't know why! It's brilliant and showcases this gorgeous tree so perfectly - bravo!
