Sheltering Tree

Today's card was made for the Moxie Fab World Lovely as a Tree challenge and uses images from a Softpencil digi stamp set. As soon as I saw the tree image, I knew I wanted to use it - such a cool design!!

I actually added the bigger top to the tree because I wanted this wider tree top shape to match with my quote.

I paper pieced the trunk and the top by first printing on regular paper, then taping patterned paper over the images on the printer paper and running through the printer again. I glued Prima flowers over the flower images that were already on the tree and sewed seed beads onto all the flowers and all the dots on the tree design.

Here's a closer shot of the tree:

For the sky, since I couldn't find my cloud stencil, I made my own by cutting out various sizes of circles with my Nestabilities, and then taping the circles together. I then airbrushed the sky using my stencil. The hills were hand cut and the sentiment was printed from the computer and hand cut as well.

For the tree top and hills I used the Basic Grey Porcelain pad and for the trunk I used the DCWV Latte Stack. I hope you like it and TFL!
