There are so many ways to use the branch image from the Feathered Homes stamp set from Brutus Monroe! I especially liked using just a portion of the stamp off the edge of my card panel to create an all-over pattern.
There is something about the way the image is drawn that reminds me of toile fabric patterns so keeping this card very simple with black and white stamping was my first thought.
The sentiment panel covers the center so I only stamped around the edges and it filled in perfectly.
The sentiment is from the Tree of Thanks set - so many well designed sentiments in that one! I added a small pop of color behind the sentiment panel - just find a scrap of your favorite color cardstock!
If you don't want to stamp the entire border, you can just try a few at the top of a panel to give the impression of a canopy of trees.
For this card, I embossed the branches and sentiment with Alabaster embossing powder and ink blended over top with green and blue Distress Oxide inks using a blender brush.
I popped this smaller panel on top of a white card base that had been embossed with a woodgrain pattern (any pattern would work to just give a little texture here).
Thanks so much for stopping by!
