I think I shall never see a thing as lovely as a tree
TREES...yes, that is the topic for this week's challenge at Saturday Stamper. This is just the 2nd week for the new website and it looks like it is going to bring lots of inspiration.
For my challenge I pulled out a stamp that has been in my stash for 2 years. I bought it came to me unmounted as a part of a bag of miscellaneous stamps at a yard sale. When I bought it I found it still had mounting foam on the back which made it difficult to get a good test image...and the fact that it is a huge stamp of a whole tree makes in challenging to use for cards. But this challenge saved it's life as part of my collection--it's finally got it's long past due EZ mount properly fitted. If anyone knows I would love to know what company made it.
For my card I heat embossed the tree in white so I could do a dye ink resist. All inks were added with cut-n-dry foam. The card base is a purchased piece of handmade paper. Copper mesh was punched with a circle punch to enhance the small leaf icon which was made by embossing a Maryse Carrier stamped image. Hope you like it!
