A sparkle tree

In my last post I mentionned a foam stamping product for which I couldn't remember the name. I had to search through a product catalog at the store until I found it. It's called Penn Score. The product has been around many years. Doreen was cleaning out drawers of demo products & found it. I decided to play with it. I really like the results for the bird.

Today, I put together another card using Hero Arts stamps from a Clear Design set called "Trees, Birds & Messages". The set includes 2 birds, a tree, branch, squirrel & several verses as well as some smaller elements.

For this card, I stamped the tree in black. I used watercolors to paint the leaves, flowers & background. I added a slope of ground in brown across the bottom. Once the paint had dried, I added Stickles glitter glues for some sparkle. Stamp "enjoy" & add a bow to the tree. Mat on a salmon/pink paper. The scallops were cut & embossed of a soft green vellum using the largest Spellbinders Nestabilities Square. Since my image was not a square, I trimmed an edge off of the scallops & glued it in place at the top of the tree. It's really hard to tell that it's been pieced, isn't it? Adhere it all to a lime green Bazzil card. Voila! A mini piece of art to brighten someone's day!

Enjoy!
