Lovely as a tree


Don't ask my why it has taken me so long to buy Lovely as a tree. I have used Leonies (thanks lovey) quite a lot but never got around to buying it. Any way so I ordered it last week and it came today. So here is my card I made with my lovely new set. We made some lovely cards using this faux wood technique a while back at Leonie's and I thought it was a good idea to re-visit for this card. Also over at Marelle Taylor she has the instructions aswell. Here is my version of what I did.

I used Lovely as a tree stamp set with Windsor Park D.S.P. Misc brads and some twill.
1. Swipe a piece of More Mustard cardstock with a More Mustard inkpad, using your stamp pad direct to paper. Repeat with Creamy Caramel, then Close to Cocoa, and then Chocolate Chip (if desired)
2. (optional) Use a ruler and Chocolate Chip marker to draw lines for floorboards and nail-holes. Make sure to stagger your joins!
3. Now swipe with Whisper White Craft ink, and set aside to dry.
4.Then I repeated the process with More Mustard, creamy caramel, close to cocoa and finished off with choc chip just to finish off.

Thanks for looking.

What a fantastic effect. I love the way it looks like a framed picture. Must give the faux wood technique a go.
