I found this older tree stamp from Stamp Oasis (Rubbernecker used to sell them) in my 'tree' drawer and I just had to ink it up - but I decided to do a watercolor technique of coloring the stamp with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers (I used a light green, a dark green and a brown), spritzing the stamp with water and then pressing the stamp onto watercolor paper - and this is what happened!
TOTALLY love how it came out! I die cut the panel and the card base using Noted: Scalloped A2 dies from PTI. I stamped the Proverb from an old Stampendous set called Inspired Verses using Wendy Vecchi Archival Orange Blossom Ink.
To balance off the card design - I added 2 mint green enamel dots in the left corner.
(I know, I didn't follow the rule of 3, but there really wasn't room for 3 and I only had 2 dots this size!)
