Returning to the theme.

After yesterday's debacle (A word I don't think I have ever written before....) from the Card-io theme we are straight back to another card using Card-io stamps!

This time I did a blended ink background before stamping. I am not entirely happy with the middle tree but was pleased that the silhouette style stamping worked well for a man's card.

This set (in black) is called "Perfect Patch" but I also used stamps from Emily's Garden (Leaves on trees), Bugs and Snails, Clematis Garden (Contents of the Wheelbarrow) and Oriental Magnolia ( A nice leafy bough).

I used a grass stencil when I made the background and  I combined distress inks and oxides. I used Momento Tux Black on top of the distress inks.

Green Stickles and pearl bling to finish.
