Lovely Dad Tree- SCIC51

It's Thursday and that means time for another Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge! This week we have some masculine-ish colors for you to be inspired by!

We would love to have you join us! All you need to do it look at the inspiration picture, make something that the picture inspired you to make and then upload if to the Stampin' Celebration blog!

This week I focused on the colors from the inspiration picture for my card. I used Soft Suede, Old Olive and Marina Mist as the main colors and added a little Basic Grey for good measure!

I used the Lovely as a Tree stamp set for the main image and stamped it onto water color paper and then colored it using Stampin' Write Markers.

I also did a little masking on the main image to get the dirty edges to make the tree stand out a bit better.

I added a little bit of Basic Grey satin ribbon and a few strands of Linen Thread for some added texture.

I hope I inspired to you join us over at the Stampin' Celebration site this week!

Thanks for looking!
