winter trees (by Veronica)

I love tree stamps, so these  - Orchard design-a -tree -on last month's shows were right up my street! They do come with leaves and flowers stamps so you can change the effects according to the seasons, but I loved them as the bare trees.

I stamped the larger tree in versafine black and clear embossed it, then used sponges and distress inks to create the wintery sky background, then trimmed close to the image. 

The sentiment from Life is so much better  was alos stmaped and embossed onto spare card and cut out.

The card background was made by splitting  a piece of corrugated card and then spraying it with an ancient green glimmer mist before rubbing a bit of gold wax over parts of it.

 The second card I used a spare bit of white card and stamped the trees, then used sponges, black soot and hickory smoke  distress inks  and torn paper to create the landscape. The sky was also sponged using the hickory smoke again and broken china.Trimmed down again to fit across a card blank, then the sentiment from Life is so much better stamped below.


  1. Two wonderful landscapes on your card, and love the textures added in the first one. I have orchard tree so thanks for the ideas!

  2. These two scenes have so much atmosphere Veronica and love the black grey and blue used on both with some wonderful masking and stamping of the wonderful trees and large sun/moon in the background, and with the beautiful added hills on the second, and super added words on both. x

  3. These are magical scenes.
