Happy Tree

I just love this tree stamp! This is in the Unity September kit of the month, and it's one of the larger stamps in the kit. This card is a 5x7. Which I don't make often, but sometimes you just have to! :)

I made this card following a Facebook sketch challenge, which is now over. Even though this image came out with other Autumn stamps and sentiments, it can be used year 'round depending on how you color it. I think it's just darling, with it's simplistic style and those sweet stars hanging from it's limb.

This is stamped onto watercolor paper, colored with markers, then a wet brush to blend the colors out. I went with a yellow outline to make it look like the sun setting behind it. The papers in the background I bought last year, and is in my 'fall colors' stash. I had to add some rustic twine for texture, and a few enamel dots to finish. The spots in the background were made by tapping my paint brush when it had brown ink on it.

Now I need to make or buy some 5x7 envelopes so I can get to mailing this!! Thank you for having a look!
