I opted to do this swap: Tree on a Bookpage.  The page is from a book I found in a Florida thrift store in Latvian!  How random is that???

There are three trees on this ATC.  Can you guess…or perhaps the answer is below.

 

Details:

  1. Base:  Product packaging.
  2. First Layer:  Latvia book page.  I stamped this with a tree stamp (the circles) in walnut stain. I also distressed the edges with walnut stain. then I heat set this so I could move on.  I had received a chipboard tree in a swap and put that over the first layer and pounced around it with Peeled Paint Distress Ink.
  3. Second Layer:  Inside an embossing folder I swiped several gelato colors, misted to activate the colors, inserted the chipboard tree, and pressed with a Big Shot!  Loved this.  I attached the tree and cut off some of the extra…some of it I wrapped around to the back and glued down.  The final step was outlining the chipboard tree with a green marker.
  4. Final Step:  Brush a small amount of Martha Stewart Pearl Acrylic Craft Paint over the whole thing!
