July SFYTT - Just Because

Imagine crisp white paper, an embossed  hounds tooth pattern, touches of red .... that's where I started but not where I ended up.

I decided on the tree and the bird and hounds tooth just didn't work with that, so I pulled out my Summer Camp patterned paper and spring moss card stock.  A little bit of Chocolate Chip card stock and grosgrain ribbon, a wood grain impression plate and voila - kinda looks like a tree right?
 For the focal layer I cut a circle of Cherry Cobbler then a smaller one of white.  I stamped the branch to align with the bottom edge of the tree patterned layer.  I colored the leaves with Simply Chartreuse copic trio and the bird with Pure Poppy copic trio.  I stamped the bird again on Pure Poppy dotted patterned paper and cut out the wing and popped it up on foam tape
After seeing Maile Belles blog this week with stamping then adding texture I decided to try that and stamped the sentiment from Giga Guidelines in Chocolate Chip ink then embossed with the wood grain impression plate.

Thanks for stopping!


  1. Very pretty, Maureen! Such a sweet image, and I love all the texture from the woodgrain dry embossing. Thanks for joining us at SFYTT!
