inspired trees

Hi everyone. This morning I checked today's inspiration challenge on SCS and decided to use one of the samples given rather than look through the webside. This card was rather fun to make. So not my usual style.

I selected several colors of cardstock and ink for the trees. With a wood grain stamp (Hero Arts), I inked the following: really rust ink on really rust cardstock, always artichoke on mellow moss, creamy caramel on creamy caramel, and chocolate chip on cranberry crist & chocolate chip. Then I punched different sized circles from the pieces and cut narrow strips for the tree trunks. Then I arranged them on the cool caribbean cardstock. I stamped the little bird (A Muse) on top of the tallest tree and again on really rust and cut out the rust one, leaving off the legs, and gluing the body over the first one.

I rounded the corners with a punch, added a strip along the bottom with some brads and a computer generated sentiment, which I punched out with a word window punch. Then I glued everything to a chocolate chip card base.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Be blessed.
