Cute Card Thursday And Ippity

Some texture for you today, I always like to mix a bit of texture together. The challenge over at Cute Card Thursday is:


So get your tree and leaf stamps out. My tree is from the gorgeous {Ippity} kit What Matters Most which you can get from {Ippity} Inspiration.

I've used a mix of Acrylic paint and watercolour pens and pencils to colour the tree and bird stamps.

The calico was coloured with Acrylic paints.

As I've used Acrylic paint for this card I thought it would be perfect for the Gingersnap Creations Spicy Supply challenge this month which is - Paints.

Have a Tree-mendous day you all.

Colouring - Acrylic paints; Marvy Le Plume II Watercolour pens; Watercolour pencils
Usual Suspects - Paper trimmer; Silicone glue; Golden Soft Gel
Other - Calico; Acrylic Paints; Sewing machine; Bond-a-web; Corrugated card; Craft Vilene
