Hi, everyone, and welcome to this week’s Crazy 4 Challenges! Today our challenge is to use a tree on our projects.
I pulled out one of my favorite sets – LJD Out On a Limb stamp set and LJD Out On a Limb Die-namics for my card. I started with a Kraft card stock base, then on Ranger watercolor paper I watercolored a background with Blue Breeze dye ink and Sour Apple dye ink. The cloud was cut with Blueprints 21 Die-namics and colored with Daffodil dye ink, the clouds with Cloud Cover-Up Die-namics and lightly highlighted with the black from my Kuretake water colors. The tree was colored with Kraft dye ink, Sour Apple dye ink, and Jellybean Green dye ink then I popped up the tree and a couple of clouds with foam mounting tape. The sentiment was stamped on Black Licorice card stock with Versamark and a sentiment from LJD Out On a Limb and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder before also being popped up on foam.
And that's it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you, including our June Guest Designer, Debra Hensley!
