It's Not All Black and White

Getting My Verve On

I was SO EXCITED when I saw Verve's latest release. Really, how awesome is this tree? And it's not even the main image in the new Up, Up and Away set. I couldn't resist. I had to squeeze a little time in this morning for a quick card. Now I can't wait to find time to use all those gorgeous hot air balloons too. This card uses Fall-To Layout #44 from Clean & Simple. Definitely my go to place to get started on a quick and easy card. I stamped the trees on water color paper and colored with Stampin' Up! markers and a water brush. I used celery, olive, summer sun, and a bit of bashful blue faded out around the treetops. The pearls on the brad were white, so I added some coordinating color with YR07 Copic marker. For the scalloped trim on top, I cut with scalloped scissors. Marked my spots, and punched with a Crop-o-dile. The sentiment was a freebie with my Verve order.Stamps- Up, Up and Away (Verve)
Paper- celery, olive (SU!), water color (Strathmore), Romani (Basic Grey), white
Ink- VersaFine black, SU! markers
Accessories- Copic marker, K& Co. brad, American Crafts ribbon, water brush, dimensionals, scallop scissors, crop o dile
