Masked Tree

Monday, 26 September 2011

Here's my first card in a while, can't believe it's been so long since I posted one. I cut out a tree onto scrap paper using my Cricut, then using the whole where the tree was, I attached it to the card using repositionable tape. I lightly inked with green chalk ink and then stamped with a darker green using a script stamp. I do like this technique as it comes out different every time.

No postings for the last couple of weeks, as I've been in France for my holidays. I spent 10 great days walking and cycling with my hubby and 2 great friends Tina and Martin. One of our neighbours - Marcell the cock, decided to wake us every morning between 4 and 5am with his dawn chorus, had a brief pause and then carried on for most of the morning. He's lost his 2 lady friends, so we think he was searching for a new partner. Martin just wanted to put him is a casserole!!
