Cute Card Thursday - Tree-mendous

Happy Thursday!

Our challenge this week at Cute Card Thursday is Tree-mendous!


Paper: Rockstar (DCWV)
Accessories: Flowers, leaf punch, branch punch.


This card was all about the coloring. I used distress inks to color my scene. I love the way distress inks allow you to mix and combine colors to create a more realistic scene. Due to the size of my picture, I used a minimal number of embellishments which provided a nice balance to the card. 

I free-hand drew the sidewalk and added some cracks to give a little extra realism to the pavement.

I will be entering this card into the Just Magnolia Anything Goes Challenge (with the option of Brown and Creme, which are the colors of my base papers). 

Thanks for stopping by today!

Ooooooo! You make me want to pull out my watercolor paper and give this distress coloring another try! You've created such a darling scene, and even the grass growing out of the cracks in the sidewalk is fabulous! Wonderful artistry!
