In the leafy treetops...

the birds sing good morning! (just a little song to start off the day!)

A new MICRO challenge is up at Caardvarks!!! It's called 'Branching Out' and is all about TREES!!! I just LOVED this challenge! Tree's rock!
You have the weekend to work on your card and get it linked up at the blog!!

Here's what I did for the challenge!


As per Jen's request :) the owl card on the left was made using some new stamps from Basic Grey. I used Ranger Distress inks for the leaves and nest, Ranger Adirondack for the branch.
The "English Robin" stamp is from Inkadinkado (one of my favorite stamp Manuf.!) I stamped it with my Adirondack ink pad and colored it with a mixture of Copics and SU! Markers. The lace is from the embellishment studio
Papers are a mix of Jenni Bowlin and Pink Paislee!

Hi Natalie! I LOVE these cards. I spend 20 mins staring at them last night. Can you please explain how you created the images? Stamped I assume, then how did you color them. Gorgeous work, as usual, N.

I agree with Jen, AMAZING work! I tried to hard to find good tree stamps in a hurry and had no luck. Beautiful work!
