Stampin’ Up!s Rooted in Nature is new to me and I have been wanting to use these trees from the set. Jennifer’s sketch was perfect for me to ink up the trees and fussy cut them out. I applied Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz and Early Espresso Markers directly to the stamp, huffed on them and then stamped onto Whisper White Cardstock. I then fussy cut them out and layered them on my card. This technique is one I haven’t used in ages, but it works really well when you want to add multiple colours to a stamp. I always start with my lightest colour first so I don’t transfer my darker ink to my lighter markers.
The sentiment I’ve used on my card has been stamped in Basic Gray Ink. The sentiment is from Dragonfly Dreams. I added a button and some Linen Thread and my masculine card was done.
Here’s my card:
We would love it if you could play along with Jennifer’s sketch. Head over to Freshly Made Sketches and take a look at the inspiration the Clean Team have made for you.
Thanks for stopping by.
