Make it + mail it

One of the Hero Arts designers, Lisa Spangler, is having a new challenge on her blog, make it + mail it, wich basically is about making a card for someone, and then mail it! Genious, isn't it?
This is my card, it goes out to a friend far, far away, and it's a glimpse of how the spring forest looks like here in Norway, the birch trees with its tiny fresh green leaves. And some tiny splashes of colorful flowers peeking out from between the trees. So pretty, and a sight I look forward to every year when we are approaching spring!
The Tree Trunks (S5477) were stamped with Versamark on watercolor paper, and clear embossed. Then I spritzed water on the image, and added color with Distress Stains Broken China and Peeled Paint. The ribbon is also colored using the Peeled Paint stain. The tiny leaves on the trees are Liquid Pearls Opaqe white, colored green with Copics, the flowers are Dimensional Pearls Wild Plum.
Great challenge, Lisa!
Anette :o)

For en flott gjengivelse av bjørkespirer og blåveis! Ser at du har vært (og fortsatt ER!) i en turkis periode - ergo faller jo jeg i staver over alle de fantastisk fine kortene du har laget! Beklager at jeg ikke har kommentert etter hvert, skal ta meg en kveld og legge inn:)
