I love Trees

Another post from me again today as I have had a lovely crafty day  cosy in my little room of crafts and the rain has been beating against the window with  howling winds ....where did summer go!   Anyway I lost my bookmark which I made while I was away on my travels  so fed up with a scrap of paper to mark my pages I made another today and it fits the challenge over at Craft room challenge ~Trees and/or Leaves.

I used distress inks for the background wild honey and mustard seed sprayed with water and dried before stamping this gorgeous Fir Tree stamp set by Sheena Douglass in vintage photo and then I used pine needles for painting in the green leaves, sentiment stamped in black archival, the edges were given a layer of vintage photo and sprayed again with water, I mounted onto black card, finishing with a brown ribbon.  A simple make but so useful and much better than a scrap of paper!

Thanks for looking 'till next time
