Thoughtful Branches Card #4

Today is the first day that you can order the Thoughtful Branches Bundle — stamp set and coordinating framelits — which is available during the month of August (while supplies last).  I decided to try for a more masculine feel for this card, using the pine tree and a bit of a watercoloring technique.   I saw a card similar to this on Pinterest, and decided to go for it.  Supplies are listed below, but I wanted to tell you how I make the tree image.  It is quite simple, yet looks artistic!  I stamped the tree branches first, and then the leaves, on watercolor paper.  Then I spritzed the paper with Stampin’ Mist.  You can use water, but I don’t ever have that handy on my stamp table, so I always grab the Mist!  I think I sprayed 4-5 times, but you can decide how “fuzzy” you want your image.  It will bleed a bit more as the paper gets more and more saturated.
Watercolor Pine Tree CardI think this card would make a great card for a man, and you could easily change the greetings for a birthday card or a sympathy card.  As always, you can click on any of the photos below to purchase the item from my Online Store.  But you can also call me or email me at any time to place an order.  Don’t let this bundle slip away…….purchase yours before they run out!
