I placed an order with Gina K last week, and here is my first card using my new stamps. You will be seeing these stamps on my September 2017 calendar page:) I was just a tad behind, but have now finished that page.
I inked up the tree stamp with yellow ink. Then I used four different color markers to finish the tree. I used brown for the trunk and branches. Then I "thumped" with the other three markers to color the tree. I used the coordinating brown ink pad for the sentiment. I doodled the border with the brown marker, also, and matted with matching cardstock.
Edited to add: I have uploaded a short video to YouTube showing how to do "thumping." You can view it here.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
