Stampin' Up! Perched in a Tree ~ Handmade Card


One of my favorite things when creating cards is to make cards that are deceptively simple.  This one, turns out, is not that kind of card.  It isn't OVERLY complicated either, but there is a little special something about this one that might not be immediately obvious in the photo.

The background behind the trees was created by brushing Pecan Pie, Copper Clay and Early Espresso with Blending Brushes on a piece of Basic White Cardstock.  Then, I blended Night of Navy over all of it.  The best part was at the end, when I mixed a bit of Rubbing Alcohol and a squirt of Silver Metallic Enamel Effects in a Spritzer and lightly sprayed over the entire piece of cardstock. I love the slightly shimmery effect this gave the background.  I feel like it made the background look like a forest at night. 

Thanks for visiting my blog today.  

Happy Stamping!
