1-Father Knows Best

By April 14, 2008General

There is yet another tree image that has not yet been used in any of the sneak peeks that I thought I would showcase today.  It is a really cool retro tree which has SO many design possibilities!

Plain_tree
Here is the "simple" version of my tree.  I fell in love with this color scheme (Papertrey’s Aqua Mist & Landscape Palette ink).  I cut up the sentiment using my ransom technique.  I helped fill the left side of the project nicely.

Tree_closeup
Here is the "embellished" version of the tree.  There are two small separate stamps included in this set that imitate the circles from the tree.  They coordinate with 1/2-inch and 1/4-inch circle punches.  By adding these individual circles to the tree with foam dimensionals, you add a lot of detail & visual interest.

Polka_dot_brad
I really wanted to use a polka dot brad on this project, but didn’t have one the right color.  I ended up using my handy dandy White Poster Paint Pen from Sharpie to add my own dots to this plain brad.
