Curtain Call Lovely Leaves Challenge

I Make I Talk Joan Bardee

Yes, there are leaves on this tree.

The challenge at Curtain Call Inspiration is "Lovely Leaves."  How can you not love that photo??

Used the Memory Box Small Triangle Tree stamp, which is a Christmas stamp.  However, looking for ways to use my stamps in a variety of ways.

Here's a close up of the watercolored "leaves".

Stamped the image on watercolor paper, embossed in white, and watercolored using Tombow markers and Ranger Distress inks.

Cut out the image and added a tag, twine and some wood embellishments.



Stamps:  Memory Box Small Triangle Tree and Neat and Tangled Just Hello
Paper:  Cream Recollections and watercolor paper
Ink:  Versamark, Tombow markers and Ranger Distress inks
Other:  Twine, wood embellishments, Ranger tag die, watercolor brush, Corner Chomper, dimesionals, Glossy Accents (to adhere wood on the tag)
