Project tips!

  1. When using blending brushes I recommending having about 6 brushes, 1 for all greens, 1 for reds, 1 for yellows etc so you don’t have to wash them and you conserve your ink.
  2. I used heavy-duty scissors with serrated bladed I bought at the dollar tree to cut through all of the trees at once. Be sure to hold the trees together tightly as you cut so they don’t slide.
  3. If you don’t have stamps you can try this technique with scrapbook paper, it would be really cute and you can use up what you have!

I hope this project inspired you and til next time happy crafting!

  3. Very cute card. Thanks for showing us the way you “arrange” them before sticking anything down. Love the idea of arranging the piles of pieces like that.
