Birch Tree Thanks - Winnie and Walter Rerun Challenge

Good morning! Today is the start of a new Rerun Feature and Challenge at Winnie and Walter - this month our featured set is Scenery: Into the Woods. I used this fun stamp to recreate the feeling of a forest of birch trees for my clean and simple card today!

I stamped the birch trees in two soft colors of ink from Simon Says Stamp - Fog and Fossil - varying the height on them to give a more realistic appearance. I then added some flicks of white paint to sort of mimic a snowy or wintery feel - or this time of year it could be blossoms from another nearby tree, or cotton wood blossoms (like we have floating everywhere here lately!)

I let that dry a bit, then stamped my sentiment over the top to keep this a nice one layer card! The stamp set I used is not available for purchase at this time - it was the free stamp set with purchase last year for Black Friday - so if you were lucky enough to nab it then, you can pull it out and use it again! Or - keep your eyes open, as I'm sure it will be releasing somewhere down the road for purchase. I used my MISTI to stamp it - allowing me to stamp several times since I was stamping over the white paint splatters and wanted to get a great impression. LOVE how that helps!
