Winter Trees

I decided on a rustic natural looking card this week for my DT creation for 100 Proof Press using the SPRUCE stamp.
I stamped the trees with black archival and blended a little brushed corduroy and vintage photo ink around the edges.
I added the wording TREE and WINTER using alpha parts, I love the dimension and texture they add.  I also added tree using a chitchat sticker.
To add to the rustic feel of this card I added three leaves cut using the Tattered Leaves die, colouring with brushed corduroy and vintage photo inks and adding text to each leaf for added interest. I also added natural twine and button.
I also added a SPRUCE to the inside of my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

Christmas without glitz - what a lovely nice change from all the glitter! It's only the 2nd & I feel "glittered" out :-)

Completely gorgeous, Tracy! That tree stamp is absolutely lovely, and you've made it look sensational here! I love the texty leaves (of course) and yummy Alphaparts, and the twine bows and button finish it perfectly. This one really sings to me!
