I got very creative with this card and used lots of different techniques. I scored a diagonal plaid design on the Gumball Green card base with my Scoring Tool every 1/2″, then sponged it with Gumball Green to emphasize it even more.
The trees stamp was inked with versamark and then Gumball Green. Before I stamped in on the Whisper White card stock, working quickly, I used the paint brush end of the Garden Green marker to add some darker areas in the trees by tapping the stamp and I used the paint brush end of the Early Espresso marker to paint the tree trunks a deep brown. Can you see the color variations in the picture above?
The reason I inked up with versamark first was to keep my ink moist long enough to add clear embossing powder to heat emboss. I wish you could see the raised embossed image. Because I embossed the trees, the background can now be brayered with ink without damaging the stamped image.
Using torn post it notes to mask the sky line, I brayered the green grass. Then I brayered the sky after removing the mask.
You can also see the leaf stamped in Gumball Green on the front of the Crumb Cake envelope.Card Recipe: Stamps: Lovely As A Tree w-#115026 c-#127793, Teeny Tiny Wishes w-#115370, c-#127802 Ink for Trees: Gumball Green#126861, Garden Green marker #119701, Early Espresso marker #119680 Ink for Grass: Wild Wasabi #126959, Always Artichoke #126972, Early Espresso #126974(sentiment) Ink for Sky: Dafodil Delight #126944 (sun), Baja Breeze #126960, Bashful Blue #126961 Ink for card base: Gumball Green #126861 Paper: Whisper White #100730, Early Espresso #119686, Gumball Green #126840 Extras: Natural Designer Buttons #127554, Linen Thread #104199, Glue Dots #103683, Top Note Die #113463, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine #113439, Clear Stampin Emboss Powder #109130, Simply Scored Scoring Tool# 122334, Diagonal Scoring Plate #125586, Brayer #102395, Stamping Sponge #101610
