Framed Trees

 Good Morning.
Today, I am playing with some new to me crafting things I just picked up last week.
I wanted to make a clean and simple card and this is what I came up with.

I began by colouring the Forest Background from Hero Arts with my Zig markers, sprayed with water and stamped onto watercolour paper.  It gave me a wonderful, watercoloured image.
Next, I die cut the stitched frame using a die from MFT called Rectangle Peek a Boo Window and mounted my image behind it.
I stamped the sentiment from Technique Tuesday and added it onto a piece of blue cardstock.
That's it...pretty simple.





 Adding my card to these challenges:


Addicted to Stamps and More- CLEAN AND SIMPLE

A Bit More Time to Craft- ANYTHING GOES



 Thanks so very much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps- Hero Arts, TT/ die- MFT/ Cuttlebug/ Zig markers/ Memento bl ink

I love your watercoloured stamped background trees, Karen. Your peek-a-boo die cut window was a beautiful way of framing your image. TFS my friend. Hugs...

I really love this pretty scene Karen and the white embossing looks fabulous, and using your Zigs you have given it that slightly watery feel which suits it perfectly. I love that random stitched frame too which draws your eye in and then the nice large sentiment to finish. x

A beautiful beautiful background with the white trees Karen - and that stitched frame is now on my wanted list! The colors really pop of the surrounding white! Julia xx

How beautiful this is! I LOVE that die you used to create this fabulous frame, Karen! I think that is one I may have to have. Maybe simple for you but not necessarily for me. I'm watercolor challenged (grin).

Gorgeous, Karen! I've missed this die until now, but it's now on my wishlist!
