CASology Week 176 using Mama Elephant Tree Friends Stamp

Happy Tuesday everyone!

It’s great to be back on CASology weekly challenge and this week’s cue is Tree.

Week 176 - Tree

I wanted to make it really straightforward by using a tree stamp and since Christmas is round the corner, I was thinking of adding some festive cheer to a tree image.

This is what I came up with using Mama Elephant Tree Friends stamp set,

CASology Card Challenge Week 176

First, I stamp the sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink on the card base and stamp another on a post it tag.  I trim the post-it to mask the stamped sentiment.

The sentiment is from Mama Elephant Jingle Greetings.

Next, I stamp the tree image from Mama Elephant Tree Friends using the same ink pad.

Using Derwent Metallic color pencils, I do a partial coloring of the image using Christmas season color palette – Gold, Green and Red.  I blend the color using a fine paint brush.

Next, I trim the sides using round corner punch to have a round edge at the card opening.
