{ lovely as a tree }

I've decided that card creating and the following blogging process is like Edward Scissorhands meets The Zombie Queen. My workroom looks like a tiny tornado in progress while I'm creating (The Snap Dog thoroughly enjoys this part of the process). Mellowing insues with the camera process, and then we come to the sitting down and putting all this to words. Maybe I should try blogging first then make the card.

The edges of the French Script background layer were softened with Creamy Carmel rubbed in circular motions all along the using a sponge daubber. I wash my daubers after each use with a mild dish soap and use the same dauber for a particular colour group. The tree was inked with an Old Olive spot and then highlighted with Handsome Hunter and Chocolate Chip markers and blended with my finger. I added a swirl hodgepodge in the upper right corner of the naturals white layer which helped cover up the heavy sponging after I took the picture. It added balance to the overall project along with sucessfully masking the heaviness.

I LOVE the distressed look to the French script background. The card is one of my favorites so far! I'm looking forward to seeing more. You are an inspiration. SOMEDAY I hope to be able to use some of your great ideas in my own cards.
