I made this card for Pals Paper Arts 177 sketch challenge. This also works for Just Us Girls photo inspiration challenge 212. For some reason I couldn't get the JUGS challenge photo to appear on my post. You'll have to jump on over to the site to see the photo...it's pretty!
The sketch is pretty simple and lends itself to all kinds of ideas. I'm on fall kick, trying to come up with simple cards to do for my card classes. I wanted to try some water coloring with my class, which is so easy and fun to do. I started by cutting the big tag from Chalk Talk die set out of watercolor paper. I stamped the tree in black Stazon ink and then watercolored using my aquapainter. It's so super simple!!!
I sponged all the edges with Baked Brown Sugar ink and topped the tag with a looped piece of Burlap Ribbon and a Naturals Button. I layered it on a piece of Tangerine Tango CS after I ran it through the Big Shot with the tree bark EF. I also sponged it with a bit of BBS ink. Lastly, I stamped the BBS card base with the wood look stamp from Truly Grateful and added a little banner made from Sweater Weather DSP.
