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.
- Base: Product packaging.
- 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.
- 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.
- Final Step: Brush a small amount of Martha Stewart Pearl Acrylic Craft Paint over the whole thing!
