What a Beautiful Tree!

Well, I sort of have a new computer. All of Kevin's stuff is off of it, but I now have to wait for him to see if he can get all my stuff off my old computer. Which of course includes my photo program and all my schtuff. You know how it goes. So anyway, I still don't have everything quite right. But, I am also using this time to organize the computer and I am making a personal vow to start learning (at least try to) how to do things myself.

So, to my card. Just about everything you see on my card can be found at Limelight Papercrafts. Mandy is always expanding her store and looking out for all the "must haves" for your scrapping needs so make sure you go visit and say hi! You can also check out Mandy's blog for all the latest tidbits.

The paper is that ever present Basic Grey Sugared 6x6 pad. I love it - every single design! I paired it up with some PTI cardstock. I've found that a lot of my personal stash works with the Basic Grey. The stamp is a Unity Co. stamp called My What a Beautiful Tree! Its a large stamp and didn't need its full size so I just stamped it off my cardstock. Are you curious as to what I did with the coloring? I have to be honest and say that I'm not sure I'll ever do it again, but I was experimenting.

So what I did was stamp my image with Memento Ink then used my Copics to outline my shape. They I took my blender pen and went over the ink like crazy. My goal was to give it a thready look - I guess like a watercolor affect.

Well, thanks for stopping by and I hope you had a good week. I can't believe its Friday already.
