Thinking of You with Arboscello Tree

I can't believe it has been so long since I posted! Guess I better get back on track.

This card is for my next OWH box.

The patterned background is made using a Hero Arts/Studio Calico Lattice background stamp. I stamped it in Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  The colors are added using Distressed Ink Bundled Sage, Mowed Lawn and Forest Moss using the mini blending tool. It was then splashed with water. After drying, it was sprayed with Heidi Swapp Color Shine.

The tree is a die cut, Memory Box Arboscello Tree. I used the same above distress inks to color the branches and leaves and Gathered Twig for the trunk. Wink of Stella clear, although it does not show in the photograph, covers the entire tree.

The background cardstock is Stampin' Up Always Artichoke. The sentiment is from the Hero Arts Find Joy set, stamped in Memento Ink Rich Cocoa.

Although this card was a bit time intensive, I am pleased with the final result!
