Leaves of a Tree - JFF

The tree is from Stampin' Up! It's item # 123846 and can be purchased HERE. The sentiment is from Day of Gratitude which is item #120835 and can be purchased HERE. If you buy both sets from me at the same time I'll give you $2.00 off.

To make my card I brayered the background. Then I stamped the tree in pumpkin pie ink. Then with my markers: More Mustard, River Rock, Crumb Cake, Calypso Coral, and Cajun Craze I colored the various leaves. The tree trunk was colored in using Early Espresso. Then I highlighted with the Signo Gel Pen.

I then punched 2 bats and folded them in half to make my hinges. Sponged some Always Artichoke around the edges, matted with black on Pumpkin Pie cs. Called it done!

If you'd like to purchase the stamps mentioned in this post please contact me at 2schaubs@sbcglobal.net . Thanks
