Pine tree

Something a little different from the past few days but not entirely without a musical connection. There is really nothing to the making of this card and I’m sure it could be done in a different colour scheme such as grey/black or dark green/light green. I used Summer Sky and Nautical Blue and, as I did not have the exact blue card stock to mat the panel with, I sponged Summer Sky onto the card base to frame it above and below.

Don’t forget the “Cute to Elegant” promotion over on the Penny Black blog. There are give-aways everyday this week.


Stamps:  Pine & Star, Silent Night(PB)
Inks: Memento Summer Sky, Nautical Blue(Tsukineko)

    I have been stopping by your blog off and on for months. You are amazingly creative AND inspiring! I LOVE your use of color and sponging. I tried your slightly off snow technique for a few Thanksgiving cards and I must say that they are some of the prettiest I’ve made in a long time. THANK YOU! So happy that you share your talents and I look forward to seeing many more of your wonderful creations.

  6. Heather, I have no word to say how I love what you do! So so so beautiful! All of your cards are absolutely “magnifique”. I just love!

    Chuckled at your comment about “nothing to the making of this…”. LOL. Easy for YOU to say. This is lovely, reminds me of a gallery painting. How clever with the sponging border.

I’m so glad you share them on your blog and I get them right in my email box. =D
