Verdigris Tree (posted by Judith)

Hi Folks, I'd like to show you a sample that I have created using the Fantasy Woodland stamp set.

I stamped the orange tree image onto a piece of background paper, and coloured the image with pencils. I then embossed the edge of the paper with verdigris embossing powder. To create the background, I embossed some pearlescent card, and painted it with patina paints. Once these were dry, I rubbed some of the surface back, to reveal the dark card underneath. I added some burgundy satin ribbon, and a word which is a partial stamp from the Artistic Affirmations stamp set.







As you can see, the oranges on my tree are not orange, but it is a Fantasy Woodland tree after all!

Keep checking back for more samples from my Design Team mates over the coming days. Thanks for stopping by, Judith xx

  4. A quite amazing combination of the different media & I love the sense of fantasy you incorporated. The deep russetty colours really enhance the aquas & greens & I particularly like the way the leaves of the tree are echoed in the embossed background.
    The little brads add a lovely sense of metal to the whole too picking up on the verdigris theme.

  7. Stunning card Judith! I love that fabulous background which draws out the more muted colours of the main image perfectly. That tree is so pretty!
