Lovely As A Tree Thinking Of You

Today I am using the most popular and long selling stamp set from Stampin' Up!® "Lovely As A Tree". I have started by masking off my sentiment and sponging using my sponge brayer using the Island Indigo, Melon Mambo and Wild Wasabi. I then stamped the Lovely As A Tree stamp image. I then used various cardstock colours to form a layered mat before adhering the sponged piece to my card.

I taught this one in my Online Classes for this month (check out the Online Classes Tab at top of my blog for details). I love this technique but there are a few do's and don't's to get the result. You can use any stamp you like for this technique. I have used the Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheet and also the Gold Foil Sheet with my cards today.

I have used the background stamp and the flower image from the stamp set Southern Serenade. I coloured the image for my spotlight technique with my Stampin' Up!® Alcohol Blend Markers.
