Create your own background stamp with some markers, a clear block, and a bit of water. What do you think?

   Sheltering Tree

   Crushed Curry A-2
   Mossy Meadow 5-3/8 x 4-1/8
   Watercolor 5-1/4 x 4
   Basic White 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside)

   Tuxedo Black Memento

   Crushed Curry
   Mossy Meadow
   Pacific Point

   Clear Block Watercolor

   Clear Block "D"
   Water Mister

First, I colored my block using markers.

I then misted it with a bit of water. 

Next, I stamped my watercolor panel and allowed a few seconds for the ink to soak into the paper.

Once dry, (less than a minute) I stamped my image and sentiment.

I adhered the panel to the Mossy Meadow panel and then onto the card front.

Lastly, I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the card.

You can easily add embellishments of your choice or change the sentiment to suit your current need.

  1. I love the technique you used to get the square of color! I haven't used it, but I plan on it when I get my craft room back! Nice, simple and effective card!

    1. Thank you, Fonda. I have played with this technique a few times. I have also used various sizes of blocks too. I especially like how the colors bleed and blend together. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

  2. Sally, that square of color looks fabulous and I love the tree. Beautiful card!

    1. Thank you so very much, Jeanette. I appreciate you taking the time to visit and comment. Blessings.

  3. Love the background you created for your silhouette tree. Great colors.

    1. Thank you so much, Lisa. I have used the same color combo, but always get a different result. I love that it would never be exactly the same. Thanks for dropping by and taking a peek. Much appreciated.
