Wateercolor Tree

Supplies: Lovely as a Tree (Stampin' Up!); More Mustard, Ruby Red, Watercolor paper (Stampin' Up!); Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, Ruby Red, More Mustard markers (Stampin' Up!); chocolate chip ribbon.

So it's a trifold card. I don't have measurements really, but it is just 4.25x4.25 and I just folded it to the point where I liked it. I stamped the oak leaf stamp all over the More Mustard piece in More Mustard ink and sat it aside.

The tree. Well....I took the markers and started with the lightest color and just thumped the brush end of the marker against the 'leaf' part of the tree, then repeated untill the darkest color was last. I colored the trunk and small branches with a Chocolate Chip marker. Next, I sprayed the stamp lightly with water and then stamped on watercolor paper. WOW! Ok so it was a little damp and took several minutes to dry, but I love the way it turned out. Too cute. Elegant.

The thing I don't like about the card? I don't think I like the ribbon....
