Lone Tree

Hello Everyone!!

Here is another card that I made last night for the Hero Arts September challenge. I used Twinkling H2O’s for the background of the main image. The colors that I used are: yellow rose 26376, lemon grass 26376, ruby read 26379, and apple blossom26376. This was the first time that I used this product and I was extremely happy with it. I wanted the background to have autumn colors and I thought that a leafless tress would be perfect for this. I usually don’t make clean and simple cards, but this time I wanted to do something different.
To make the card I cut the top panel 2”x4 ¼” and I cut the scallop edge 1 1/2x4 ¼” and adhered it to the top panel. I tied ribbon around the scallop piece and put a border on the image panel and placed the top part of the image under the scallop edge. The measurement is 2 ¾”x3 ½” for the stamped image and the mat around the stamped image is 3” x 3 ¾”. The stamp is a Hero Arts Stamp—Scroll Tree F4927.

This looks like a quick card, but for me it took me a few hours to get it the way that I wanted it to look. I did 4 stamped images using the Twinkling H2O’s before I was satisfied with the end results. I was having a difficult time achieving the fall colors that I wanted. I am happy with the way that this card turned out and I would of kept on playing with the Twinkling H2O’s until I got it looking the way that I wanted it to.

Thanks for stopping by and I always appreciate the comments. Have a great day and may God bless.
