Visible Image and a Trio of Trees

hi guys a Visible Image post today and i have done a Trio of Trees using Winter Tree

these cards are so simple but very effective

this first one is simple the tree stamped on a white card, i then stamped randomly all over with the tiny snowflake from the snowflake background stamp which is sadly now discontinued,but is being replaced with the new Enchanting Snow flakes....

seriously how beautiful are they, cant wait to get hold of them and have a play!
anyway i digress lol back to the card ..... i used a glue pad, and sprinkled with glamour dust, then i drew some lines with glue and again used the glamour dust.

this second one is even simpler,but i love it, as you guys know I'm not a clean and simple kinda crafter lol, but i do really love it, i think it would make a nice sympathy card too as well as a winter celebration card

and finally a splash of colour! these really are my favourite shades, this back ground was made using a technic i saw in a magazine, must have been craft stamper because that the only one i buy lol.
its a tequnic using gesso, you spread it quite thick on a piece of card, then while still wet you lay another piece of card over the top , squish them together then pull apart , and there you have 2 pieces of lovely textured card, once dry you can colour with whichever medium you wish, i used watercolour crayons, just scribbled over , then went over with a fairly wet brush, once dry cut to size.

and there you have it a trio of trees, it might seem like a quite simple stamp but it is very versatile, you can do simple cards with it, or dress it up with tiny leaves or blossom, or even use it as an edging design on your cards, just let your imagination run with it.

happy crafting
