Flourishes Friday in a Forest of Trees

Free-for-All-Friday-550x242
It’s Flourishes Friday once again, and today finds the Sr. Design team focusing on an oldie but a goodie stamp set, the Forest of Trees.  This set has been around for quite awhile, but is one of those sets with classic versatile images you can use time and time again.  For my card today, I chose a seasonal theme…

I used some old Tombow markers to ink up three different trees from the set, starting with a budding Spring tree, then a vibrant green tree in Summer, followed by a leaves-turning-colors Autumn tree, and finally a pine tree for Winter.  This sentiment from the Life Lines stamp set was a perfect addition to my trees.  I stamped everything on Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock, then distressed the edges and sponged on some Antique Linen distress ink.  My cardstock layer and base are both from the Rich Browns Color Made Easy collection, and I embellished with some chocolate Kaisercraft pearls.

On the inside I added another tree from the Forest of Trees set, and the “miss you” sentiment from the new Sentimental Favorites stamp set.
