Stamps, Paper, Glitter Sketch Challenge 20

Kerin's Sketch Challenge #20
Stamp Sets: Trendy Trees, sanded BG
Paper: Bordering Blue, Whisper White, Always Artichoke, Mellow Moss, & the new in colors - Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango, and Rich Razzleberry
Inks: Choc. Chip, Mellow Moss, Always Artichoke(ink pad and marker)
Accessories: Wide oval punch, Cutter Kit, Stamp-a-ma-jig and scrap paper
Technique: Thumping on middle tree, distressed edges on larger oval, Tearing on the grass layers.
Use the scrap paper to make a Template 1/8" larger than the wide oval punch layer. after cutting out your back oval layers with paper snips use the distressing tool on your cutter kit(page 191 in the SU Cattie) to distress the edges until the oval looks oval and not cut out by hand, if you cut out better than me you can skip this step lol. I inked the leaves on the middle tree with Mellow Moss and then thumped the stamp with the Always Artichoke Marker.

Your card is so cute! I love the colors you used, and I'm always stuck for ideas for the smaller stamps like Trendy Trees, and you've just given a perfect sample of how to make it work!! Thanks for joining in :)
