Little seeds..

Hello everyone,

and happy New Year to you ! On this first Wednesday of 2016 it is Captain Claudine's turn to set the new challenge over at the Stampotique blog. Her theme: Trees,  and this is what she said :

'Trees have always been such a source of life for many living creatures, I just love them. I challenge you to create something with a tree incorporated somehow." 

I have made a postcard as I really enjoy making them.

I used a brayer and acrylic paint to colour the background of this postcard. I also used my finger and some white paint around the edges. I randomly stamped it after it dried and then stamped the trees and the bird on white card stock. I coloured them with Copic Markers, cut them out and adhered them to the card. I also added a few scraps of pattern paper by 7 Dots Studio; from the 'Destination unknown' pack designed by DeeDee Catron. I machine stitched this onto the card. I got the sentiment from the internet and I typed it with my old typewriter, cut it into strips and adhered it to the card. I doodled around the strips with a black pen. 

I used the following stamps:

I hope you'll join us this week. You could win one of two $30 vouchers to spend in the online shop HERE. Just remember, no Digi's and only one entry per person per challenge... 
Good Luck !!
