Tree with Watercolor

Hello friends.  I'm glad you could stop by.


For this card I stamped the tree with Archival Ink and watercolored the background.

I put clean water around the tree and picked up ink smooshed on my palette
with a water brush.  I had some Lindy's on the palette to so I
added some of that in.

I found a tiny leaf stamp that isn't much more than dots, and inked
it with green adding it around the bottom to look like smaller
trees, bushes or whatever.


There's still time to play at CAS Watercolour
Challenge ends on the 24th.


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Bonnie, that watercolored background is so pretty with your stamped tree. Love it.

Betty Keefe said...

such a pretty card, Bonnie - the watercolouring, stark tree and the wood background embossing all go together so well!

Carole said...

Very classy...I really like this, the colours, the background and I spy some embossed paper in the layering I think...wood effect. Altogether a beautiful autumnal card. So glad you are safe. High winds brought our fence down yesterday...I can not begin to imagine the devastation that people have suffered in NC. xx

It looks like a marvelous sunset background for this tree that has lost all of its leaves for fall. Fabulous smooshing! TFS & Hugs

What a wonderful stark tree against the vibrant background! Love the way you used the tiny leaf stamp to add some subtle bushes around the tree.

The leaves have fallen. The vibrant colours of this are truly representative of our fall, maple trees have that special effect. To frame and stamp in black is the perfect punch matted over vanilla card stock, a graceful beauty. Love this special card xx

Brenda said...

Wow Bonnie, I love this card! The background is so beautiful, like a golden sunset in the fall. Your "bushes" look great too, that little stamp did the job! Yep, I'm in love with this one! Hugs Brenda
