All my Christmas cards have been mailed and time to start working on the 100 Cards I am donating to Harvesters. A few ideas have been running thru my mind and this one came out first. Remember the Red and Grey Tree card a few weeks ago....this is similar using "Sheltering Tree".
I stamped the Tree twice in Stazon Black using the Misti so I could get a nice dark tree. I then added the Sentiment and somehow offset it a bit, but it still looks good. The Pool Party card base was then sponged with Marina Mist and Perfect Plum. I used the new Sponge Brayer on page 180 of the Annual catalog. If you roll on the ink pad lightly, then on your paper the shading is very subtle. I did not clean the sponge in between colors.
