I was at Samuel Taylor's craft shop in Embsay near Skipton a couple of weeks ago and managed to get this beautiful new Stampendous cling stamp called CRR164 "Poem Tree".
I love tree stamps and am always on the look out for new ones. As soon as I saw this in the new catalogue I just had to have it. I have made it fit the sketch as best I can.
I stamped the tree several times in browns and ochre colours to punch out the circles. The brown strip was stamped with gold ink and embossed with a detail gold powder to pick up the very fine script.
I also used the RH edge of the tree to make the foliage border on the background panel. A very simple card but one I thought would be good for masculine occasions. This one will do just fine for my father in law as his birthday is coming up later in the month!!
I think this will be a stamp I will use plenty!!
Isn't it lovely to have longer evenings again. Although I got caught out on Sunday morning as I totally forgot the clocks were going forward!!
