Tall trees card

Hi everyone, here is another card for the ‘Less is More’
challenge once more. Here are the details......



“We have another 
ONE LAYER CARD
challenge for you this week!
The proviso for your cards this week is to have evidence of
Shadow Stamping.

There are several ways of doing this, using emboss resist,
 re-stamping without re-inking or simply stamping
the same image in a lighter shade.”




This is what I came up with, my first effort didn’t stamp
too well so I used some smooth card for the second one.
Think I prefer the sky on the first one though hmmm,
I will show you them both anyway.



Err and no you don’t need glasses, rather a strange
effect on the eyes though isn’t it!







My first effort


Tree stamp Inkylicious
TH Distress inks Faded Jeans and Antique Linen
Momento inks Tuxedo Black and London Fog
Sentiment Hobby Art Ltd
Birds drawn with permanent pen



ps. Thankyou for all the good wishes, so kind.
I have been kept busy all week sorting my
stamps into clear plastic bags and then arranging in
perspex DVD holders. Also  a new system for my
distress inks too.Have a good week everyone.
