A Forest of Thoughts

Sometimes I need a one-layer card, easy to mail. I created this card to send to a family that recently lost a loved one. It features some stamps from Catherine Pooler Designs latest release, from the Storybook Collection- specifically from the Father's Day Bundle, as well as two of the newest four Inks available, from the Spa Collection.

I started with an A2 card made from Ultra Smooth White Cardstock. Starting about the middle of the card, I stamped the tips both trees from Wild About You in the new  Sage Ink, as well as Green Tea, Seafoam, Eucalyptus and Spruce Inks, finishing with Midnight Ink using the full stamp. I then created a night sky using an ink blender and Queen for a Day Ink, concentrating color on the top of the card. I added a sentiment from a previously released set, Faithful Flutterings. To finish the card, I added a few details to the tree with a white gel pen.

The card didn't take too long to create, and it was fun to mix and match the green hues of ink available in the Catherine Pooler Store. I hope I achieved the look of dimension of receding trees in the skyline.
