I {heart} Trees

Hello! I made this card for Ashley's Etsy inspired challenge. It also works for Unity's hip hop challenge, to use a neutral sentiment on your card. If you have never done one of Ashley's Etsy inspired challenges, go check it out! She always has some beautiful, inspiring shops to browse! She also gives away prizes!

I was inspired by this beautiful watercolor by Lauren Alexander. I ust love her stuff! I thought this heart tree by Unity was perfect! It was the first stamp I thought of when I saw this watercolor. I stepped WAAAAY out of my box, because I do not like Pixie Pink. Probably one of my least favorite SU colors (it runs a close second to Glorious Green)!

I stamped my image on watercolor paper and colored the image with my aqua painter and reinkers. I distressed the edges, and cut out a heart. The sentiment in the heart is from Unity's March KOTM. I drew the little pink swirly things in the background and added stickles (which don't show up in the photo).

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to go check out Unity's hip hop today! I am sure Angela will have some great deals!

pretty card Emily, the tree looks so cute. I laughed when I read about pixie pink & glorious green, 2 of the colours high on my "GROSS" list too.
