Sweet Poppy Stencils / Stampscapes Oak Branch Card

This morning I have had a play with my little used "Stampscape" stamps, paired with a couple of Sweet Poppy products to make this card.

I started with the Stampscapes "Oak Branch" red rubber stamp, stamping it in Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink.

I then used "Sky Blue" Ranger Archival Ink, through the Sweet Poppy Stencil called "Floral Trellis Backplate".

I stamped the sentiment, which is part of the Sweet Poppy "Hugs & Kisses" stamp set, in Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" and "Acorn" ink.  I then Inked the edges of the card in "Shady Lane" too.

I added colour to the tree using Derwent Inktense pencils, colouring the trunk and also adding a lighter shade of green to areas of the tree canopy.

Finally, I mounted the card on to a piece of green card and then on to a white card blank.
