And the dodgy photographer strikes again! It is a rectangular card and not a parallelogram honestly.
Not sure how I feel about this one, but I enjoyed playing which is the main thing. I started off with a bit of white card that had been used to mop up my spritzed craft mat when I was playing with a purple chalk spray and golden radiant rain spritzer, so it does a a golden shimmer to it, which the dodgy photographer has failed to capture. I die cut the card to sized using Simon says stamp, stitched rectangles. I then had my first play with my Altenew Birch Land set. I stamped the trunk in black versafine and masked it off to add the branches. The branches can be flexed on the acrylic block so you don't end up with them all looking the same. I added the birds to the branches and then used bundled sage distress ink to add the foliage and also a bit of forest moss distress marker on the stamp to add a bit more depth. I coloured in the tree with frayed burlap distress marker and coloured in the birds and stamped the sentiment from the set. I cut a mat of black card and mounted it on a sheet of A5 cream hammer card folded in half with 1mm foam tape. Hopefully you actually managed to read this as I'm trying to figure out how to schedule posts.
