Sheltering tree!

Hello to all!
Happy Tuesday!

Today I wanted to showcase a very versatile tree die cards!!!
I started with a  sheltering tree card to celebrate the summer season. It is definitely summer here with a pair of lovebird, the tree full of leaves, green grass.

Die cut a tree out of watercolored white CS. I didn't take out the die out of the sheet. I spritzed with water on this die sheet to let the colors blend and move.

Using my color bursts the trunk was watercolored in the shades of brown and orange crystals, branches and leaves with yellow and green crystals, now carefully took out my watercolored tree out of the sheet.

Using My Marta Stewart scoring board I added some stripes with a bone folder on a white panel and adhered the tree on it. I created a ground for my tree. There is a bit of layer of dirt with faded impression using Mowed lawn at the top of grass..... dirt, you know. The sentiment is from Here & now stamp set, fussy cut it and adhered with a black strip on an angel.

The pair of lovebirds is from Melodic Chirp stamp set, fussy cut it and adhered it to the tree branch enjoying the season. Now added my focal panel to a green panel and then a turquoise blue card base. Added a black jute bow as an embellishment. ended it up with some green splatters.

I really like the way this card turned out! Don't you!

It's a really lovely card Vinita and so pleased you joined us, but unfortunately it is not eligible for Stamping Sensations or Penny Black and More challenge as the focal element is not stamped.

Simply stunning result you got here with the colour bursts Vinita. Great idea to score the panel behind the trees. Nice touch with the white veins on your tree. Thanks so much for sharing with us at HLS.
