Hello Ai fans!

Now that we've wrapped up our last challenge let's take a look at the fun card that Tasha made.  You're going to LOVE the coloring on her tree trunk!  Show us what you've created Tasha!


For my project I used the fun 5100 - Woodland Tree Cubbies Set and 5192 - Feast Mode Set. I wanted to create a Fall scene and love how the tree looks with the colorful leaves!

The Tree and little critters were all stamped with black hybrid ink and colored with Copic Markers. I also used the included coordinating dies to cut all the images out. I think it's so much fun to add the little critters behind the doors and peeking out of the open windows!

For the background, I used two shades of Distress Oxide Ink and a simple cloud stencil to create the sky. I wanted the sky to be bright, but did not want to use blue; I think these shades totally work with the Fall theme!
The ground was created with a grass stencil and olive green paper. I also added several leaves (included in the set) to look as if they fell off the tree. Each leaf was colored using the same markers, but I colored each one differently to make them unique.

For the sentiment, I used the "Thankful for you" greeting from the 5192 - Feast Mode Set. I stamped it with a deep teal ink and added a layer of teal paper. This went perfectly with the Fall colors used throughout the card and I love the handwritten lettering!

Lastly, I added orange polka-dot pattern paper behind the doors and windows and attached the little critters. I used foam tape to adhere the tree to the card and used liquid adhesive to add the extra leaves. I also attached silver glitter paper, teal cardstock, and a pretty wood pattern paper to complete the design.

Thank you for checking out my project for today and I hope you will participate in the "Woodn't It Be Nice Challenge"!
