October Tree Challenge

This card was made for the As You See It Challenge Challenge #211 -A theme as lovely as a tree. Since it’s a tree challenge, I pulled out my favorite tree stamp set and one of my first Stampin Up sets “Lovely As A Tree”. Using the Joseph’s Coat stamping technique, I inked the image layer with GKD Crushed Coral, Distress Oxides twisted citron and Distress ink scattered straw. After stamping the image with versamark, I added Distress Vintage photo and topped with walnut stain to make the background darker. Added some die cut leaves from Momenta, a sentiment from GKD’s Autumn Splendor stamp set, layering on ivory cardstock and cranberry tart. To give a little more dimension, used the Cuttlebug Forest Branches embossing folder.
Thanks for looking.

  1. This sure fits into this challenge and your card is gorgeous. I’m in the middle of mine, but hubby accidentally cut into one of the hot water pipes so I had to go and deal with the flooding. Its a comedy of errors at our house lately. I’m exhausted so may not get my card finished til tomorrow. Need prayers for no more stupid accidents.

  2. I like Joseph’s Coat as a technique and I like Lovely As A Tree, so it’s no wonder that I like this card! Thank you for joining in with us at As You See It Challenge this week.

    1. Thanks so much for your kind comments. It was a fun challenge and happy that Bonnie found it for us to play along.

    1. Thanks, Golda, I never did the Joseph’s Coat before so wasn’t sure what to expect but adding that darker color after clear heat embossed did the trick. Thanks again for your kind words.

  3. I’ve seen the Joseph’s Coat technique used several time recently. I think it’s making a comeback, and it’s the perfect technique to use on fall trees! You did a great job of it here and you’ve inspired me to try it again, Gayle! Thanks for sharing it with us at As You See It Challenges!

  4. What a great technique to really show the beauty of fall colours on your trees – and the perfect stamp to use too. Thanks for playing along with our tree-themed challenge over at AYSI this week!
