Shady Trees?

Welcome

Another fortnight has passed and it is time for the new Word Art Wednesday Challenge.

Our generous sponsor for this challenge is The Project Bin, who are offering the winner a $15 voucher to their store.

I love the scripture we have today - which is available as a freebie  here. 


I printed it onto pale blue vellum, and then clear embossed it


The trees are from the now reitred SU set Lovely as a Tree, and I stamped using first and second generation  impressions, masking as I went, and also spritzed it with water to get a slightly water coloured effect.
The sky was then added using LC brushes


This image is from my only set of Project Bin Stamps, and is called Feline Good.  I stamped the image with a dye ink, and then moved the colour with a wet paint brush.  It was cut  with the matching die.


Oops, looks as though he may have slurped his milk a bit quickly and messed his 'bib'!  I didn't see that until I looked at the photo close up :(

I tried to convey that the cat was sitting under the shade of the trees... 

I am linking this to:

The PB cat is over 2 yrs old, the SU set 15 yrs at least

I always like a tree or two Maxine and stamping the verse onto vellum gives a lovely soft look.

What a fabulous card Maxine and I love everything about it.
I apologize for not popping in as often as I should and there's not really any excuses except I tend to be on Instagram a lot more than blogs. But, when I do swing by, it's always a feast for the eyes because you are so creative and innovative.

I really like the perspective you've created with the generational stamping of Lovely as a Tree. The way you've spritzed them gives a very pretty effect. Thank you for joining in with us at Retro Rubber Challenge.

Haha Maxine re slurped milk 😁🤣😁😊
Lovely verse on vellum.. note to self.. use vellum more (sigh, when time permits, craftroom withdrawals here, sooo busy, going to have to though, dates in earpy March NEED cards).
That Lovely as a tree set think is their most long standing set, still available and I bought mine when SU only made wood mounts years ago! Beautifully stamped!
Thanks for sharing, and may God bless you.

Lovely words and equally lovely script. And a freebie as well!
I just love how you did the trees, it looks so good with second generation stamping but I never tried it with spritzing, would you mind if I copied that idea?
Blessings, Neet xx

Brenda said...

I too, love this scripture and you have made it look so good on the vellum. It lets your beautiful sky show through. I also love your trees, smart of you to spritz them too to give a watercolor look. Love that! You cracked me up with your kitty as I had to go back and look at what you were talking about. lol Would have never noticed if you hadn't pointed it out. Love that he is sitting in the shade of those beautiful pine trees. Hugs, Brenda
