Nature Tree

Two weeks have passed by and we have another challenge for Card For Men. We have a sponsor and it is Hope JaSAHM with three young children. Trained in textile design at the Glasgow School of Art. Love all thing handmade especially papercrafts. I love to doodle.....and my doodles are available through Shop Handmade. If you would like to see her store click here. The prize winner will receive 3 images of there choice. So make sure you stop by and see her images. The image I picked was "The Tree" and we where to use mostly green on our card. It could be any occasion.
So this is what I did, I created a mountain by ripping some paper, then flipped the the edge over the have the stright edge and left a small space and added some water and then brought in some green for the grass. I used sponges to apply the ink and the ink I used was Mementos Paris Dusk, London Fog, Paris Dusk, Bamboo Leaves, New Sprout. I colored the tree with At You Spica pens. I used white pen by Ultimate Gel pen pastel from American Crafts. Added some branches for in front and I'm sorry I do not know who made the stamp. Put some ribbon and 3 green dots for embellishments. I asked my sons and I have 3 they said they really like it and thought it made a good mans card. I hope you enjoy it.
