Hello all! The Flourishes Design Team is feeling a bit "earthy" this week and decided as a team to all show off a Flourishes oldie but goody stamp set to create with! Forest of Trees has been on the all time favorite list for a while now and we are sure you'll agree once you see what my fellow designers did today with this gorgeous set! If you have't seen this set before.... here's a peek!
So pretty, don't you think? This set makes terrific "guy" cards too! On to my creation! I knew that whatever I did using this set, I wanted to make it clean and simple. And, I have no idea where this idea came from but I just started masking and grabbing inks. Before I knew it I ended up with this....
After deciding on a long and lean creation (one that would fit in a business sized envelope), I cut a piece of card stock to measure 1-1/2" and used that to trace a square on Flourishes Classic White. I used the square as a guide for masking and then lined up Post-It Notes along the trace lines. I grabbed some sponges and 4 different colors of Memento Ink and that's where the fun began! I used Lulu Lavendar, Moroccan Orange, Pear Tart mixed with Bamboo Leaves and Summer Sky. After the ink was sponged, I took some Versafine Onyx and stamped four different trees in different orientations on the squares while the masks were still on. The rest is just matting it all up! I used black card stock and some paper from Authentique called Gathering. Add a sentiment from the Life Lines Stamp set, some paper piercing, some ribbon and some bling and... ta da! Finished!
Here's a close up so you can see the trees a little better!
And, here's the sentiment!
