"Every Tree" Crafter's Companion

Taking a quick break from all the Christmas cards to show off this pretty card I made for Crafter's Companion using my Spectrum Aqua's in a little different way.  I applied them directly to this beautiful stamp from Sheena Douglas's "As Scene on Screen" set called "Wouldn't it be lovely".  After stamping it on the Spectrum watercolor paper, I used a brush dipped in water to lightly spread the ink around a bit giving it the water colored look but still having the strong lines of design from the stamp.  I love this technique!

I also used another stamp from Sheena Douglas from her "A Little Bit Scenic" sets called "Silhouette Grasses" for the sentiment.  I fussy cut around part of the stamp area, then finished off the oval shape to create the framed window affect.  Adding a few layers of cardstock and a pretty ribbon and bow completed the look.

My Crafter's Companion supplies were:

Spectrum Aquas - Leaf green, Spice, Desert, Marigold, ScarletStamp - Sheena Douglass - As Scene on Screen, Wouldn't it be lovely and A Little Bit Scenic, Silhouette Grasses
Spectrum Aqua water color paper

This card will be put in some challenges just for grins!

A gorgeous technique on these flowers. I love that the sentiment is recessed in the window. Gives a bit of dimension without taking away from the project.
