The sentiment is from Short & Sweet and guess what... so is that tiny flower I added at the last minute. I don't think I've ever used it, and it seemed the perfect proportion for these trees. Finished them off with a touch from the white gel pen. Tree trunks are watercolored with a touch of Close to Cocoa ink and an aquapainter.
Here's my second version- using vellum cardstock for snowy hills. Does it work? It is tough adhering vellum so that the adhesive won't show. This is the best I could do with a bit of Tombo Mono Multi that I rubbed around with my finger to spread as thin as possible. Can you tell there aretrees from Lovely as a Tree in the background? I haven't used that set in ages- in fact, was considering putting it in my storage bin for a while. They are stamped in White craft ink while Dasher is stamped with black craft ink. The circle sentiment is from Punch Pals.
Neither of these is totally clean & simple in the sense that they have a lot of "white space" but they use minimal layers and embellishments so I think they qualify- at least by my definition.
So thanks for stopping by today! We'd love to have you join us for the CAS45 challenge.
