Terrific Trees

                         Just Because
This is my second card for the
I was also inspired by
The Memory Box Challenge #4 - Terrific Trees
I combined the challenges by using the colours of Green and Gold
and The Memory Box die Alessandria Tree Outline.
I die cut the Alessandria Tree Outline die
out of gold mirror card.
For the background of the tree I used brusho powders onto 
watercolour card and left them to do their magic
 before die cutting them out with the same die.
I also die cut some grass and just put it on one side 
to draw the eye over to the sentiment.
I assembled the card onto Linen card stock.
I enjoyed using the fall-outs of the die and gluing them in...very therapeutic!

A beautiful effect with the Brushos and the tree outline. The grass die is really effective, which die did you use?

Mac Mable said...

Thank you for stopping by and your lovely comments. The tree die is Alessandria Tree Outline die by Memory Box and the grass is one I found in my stash, which I haven't actually used before but now I've found it...I am sure I will use it lots! Thanks again x

Thank you for stopping by. I had my brusho's ages before using them. I played yesterday with them, sprays and water colouring etc and had a fun day, but incredibly messy! Brusho's amaze me but I get a different effect everytimepay with them, sometimes good and sometimes awful!

Another fab CAS card using your brushos, you really have created a wonderful effect. I must get mine out and have a play (and clear away anything I don't want to cover in mess!) Love that tree die too.
Thanks for sharing with us.

Hi there. I wanted to thank you so much for participating in our Memory Box September challenge. I really love how you highlighted how the Alessandria Tree Outline looks over a watercolored background. I think people often think about only using one color, and your mix to leafy colors is so pretty.

Mac Mable said...

That is so kind of you to say. I loved making the card and joining in on your challenge. Thanks again x
