I started this card by spritzing Green Olive Color Splash (spray ink) to a large acrylic block and then adding some water to soften it.
Then I pressed the front side of the card base to the acrylic block and smooshed it around a little. There was left over ink on the block so I dripped some of the leftover to the card to create some drops. (I also added some of this leftover ink to the inside of one of my junk journals - but that's a whole other project!)
I really needed to be careful on this step because I didn't want color on the back of the card. I used my heat gun to help it dry and once it dried, I added some Heidi Swapp Gold Ink Spray to it. Once those drops dried, I let it sit overnight under a stack of acrylic blocks so it would flatten.
I ended up using my Cricut Easy Press to iron it a little because it was still a little more warped than I wanted.
I used the MISTI to stamp the tree to the card front. It took three impressions to get it nice and dark. The stamp is from Bloom Art (now Lila Grey).
So I added a quote from one of my Tim Holtz small talk booklet. I used a fine point black pen to outline the rectangles.
Now it's your turn. Create a card using a tree or trees and link it up to the Creative With Stamps (CWS) challenge site. The challenge runs from October 1st through October 31st. Good luck!
