  1. I bought this tree stamp last spring and have been waiting for the right time of year to use it.  Always love to try new stamps.
  2. I stamped the tree with Sepia Ink on scrap paper,  embossed with clear embossing powder and heat set.  The main tree trunk still had a couple of opened spaces so I used the Copic pen to fill in the color. 
  3. I then put glitter on each of the leaves and the branches and also the falling leaves and let dry.  Once dry, I used the medium pen on the ground under the tree, added the copper embossing power and heat set. 
  4. I trimmed the paper to desired size, punched the corners and using the dunes ink, rubbed around the edges.  This ended up covering some of the glitter, so re-glittered the pieces with paint.  Took a dark brown piece of scrap and adhered to the tree paper.  Using a light brown, I attached the print paper, which was 4” x 5.25”.  I then adhered the tree to the card with pop dots.  I punched out the dark mulberry brown leaves and attached to the left side of the card.
  5. I’ve added a couple of additional Monochromatic cards.  Hope you enjoy them all.
