Simply a 'Tree'

Hello and Welcome to today's card.
I have a busy time coming up soon
 with friends travelling from the other side of Oz,
also relatives and friends for a short time
but managed to whip up a card for the
current challenge over at CAS Watercolour - 
 The 'Theme' being Tree

I started with my watercolour background
with Tim's Stormy Sky using acetate.
I then inked up the Stamp It Large Conifer
with Memento Luxe Northern Pine
spritzing it with a mix of SU Champagne 
and water, stamping on to water colour paper.
Painted a water wash to the bottom of the tree
 and the leftovers were splattered around.
This was then cut from a MFT stitched die
popped onto a bigger die and popped
again onto white card stock. 
The sentiment is from SU and finishing
with a scored line either side. 

 Not too much crafting time coming up but
will try and squeeze in a few favourites.
I have scheduled posts but commenting
on your blogs may be a bit hit and miss.
 I will try my best!

Thanks for dropping in.
Till next time Cherrio from
