Lovely as a tree…

March 13, 2009

old-roomnew-room-070I have loved this gorgeous set of stamps (Stampin’ Up -Lovely As a Tree )since the very first time I saw them. My good friend (hi Paula) had purchased them a while ago so I got to have a play around with them and they very quickly went onto my wish list. Aren’t they just awesome?? I challenged myself  to use only 2 sets of ink and used Almost Amethyst and Pale Plum. The ‘tree and the wish big’  are stamped onto Watercolour Paper, I matted that onto Pale Plum cs and placed them onto to Almost Amethyst cs as my card. I sponged around the edges of the tree with Pale Plum and Almost Amethyst with the stampin’ pastels. The little flower between the half pearls,(all from the Pretties Kit) on the length of ribbon, has been hand dyed with the Almost Amethyst ink pad. I also chalked around the ‘wish big’ stamp (from Stampin’ Up -Short and Sweet) and around the entire card base. I love the way the colours mingle adding softness.

love Sally x
