This is what she chose.
I'm not going to tell you how many times I tried to do a card for this challenge.
Actually I lost count!
I love watercolor. I have lots of tree stamps and dies.
But nothing seemed to work for me.
Finally something came together that I could use but wasn't
completely satisfied with.
Then I picked up this die and just started playing with it without really thinking.
It ended up being my favorite of all the forest of watercolor trees in my studio.
I used a gray Stampin' Up marker to outline the trees and add
some lines on the trees, picked up some color from my palette
(left from the many other tree trials) to color the leaves and around the edge
and found a watercolor piece in my background box that was just
big enough to cover the opening.
I've put the die cut piece on foam to give it some extra dimension.
The Design Team has a lot of fabulous inspiration for you at
I hope you'll check it out and join in the fun!
