Stamped the tent by loading the stamp with Versamark and then Basic Black ink and then stamped it on a 3″ x 4.5″ piece of Whisper White card stock.
Heat embossed the image using clear embossing powder and a heat gun.
Colored the tent with Sahara Sand and Bashful Blue markers.
Colored the shadows in the Sahara Sand area with River Rock and the shadows in the Bashful Blue area by adding another layer of Bashful Blue marker.
Added a bit of Daffodil Delight over the windows.
Colored over the tent using Versamarker and then heat embossed the entire image using clear embossing powder and a heat gun.
Brayered Daffodil Delight at the top of the card stock.
Brayered Pumpkin Pie ink at the top of the card stock, not covering the Daffodil Delight ink entirely.
Brayered Cajun Craze at the very top of the card stock.
Sponged Old Olive ink at the bottom of the card stock.
Sponged Basic Black at the very bottom of the card stock.
Cut two trees using Basic Black card stock and Old Olive card stock at 4.8″ using the Cricut and Cricut cartridge Bloom.
Glued the two layers together.
Added a 5″ x 6.5″ Cajun Craze Panel and a 4.75″ x 6.25″ Basic Black panel to the main image panel.
Adhered the two trees to the card stock.
Flipped the card stock over and cut the hang over of the tree flush with the Cajun Craze card stock.
Added a 10″ x 6.5″ Whisper White card stock panel folded in half for the card.
Here is the finished card measuring 5″ x 6.5″.
May you get to enjoy nature this summer.
I’m off to work in my garden. Here is a sample of what I brought in this morning. Onions anyone?
