Faux Illusion

I have seen this "Faux Illusion" technique done a few different ways and so I have tried it and it does look quite effective on the finished card. Here is the Faux Illusion Technique Tutorial by France Martin. I did mine a little differently but has the same effect. I stamped the trees  directly onto the embossing folder, then placed a piece of Soft Sky Cardstock in the embossing folder and put it through my Big Shot. Then using a dauber and Whisper White ink I  rubbed it into the raised trees on the cardstock. I find using a dauber is a lot more precise and you are less likely to get ink on your card.

I would like to enter this card into the
