Heritage Tree

Hi - Hope everyone had a great weekend.  Myself, I did, I managed to get a lot of colouring done - which makes me happy! - Weather was gloomy Friday and most of Saturday, so I didn't feel guilty staying indoors to colour.

I was going through my bucket of images that I have stamped off, and came across this image already coloured! BONUS! I say.  The image I'm using today is called
Heritage Tree - I love all the swirling branches - anything related to nature I love - flowers, trees, leaves etc - I've gotta have it.

As always, the tree was stamped on bella's bestest paper using black memento ink.   I pulled out my prismacolour pencils to colour this up.  Love all the sections on the tree limbs - it was fun to colour.  After cutting out with the square nestie, I sponged some versamagic wheat around the image. The next layer - coral colour - I used the largest die in the fleur de lis square.   I love the look of the flourish swirls on this piece. DP  is from a 12 x 12 paper pack from K & Co. called
Scrap Pad to go. 
Finished  off by popping up the tree layer using dimensionals, adding  some flower soft on the tree and ground area, along with a small white pearl in each of the four corners on the coral.

Back on Wednesday with another card to share with you.  Thanks for stopping by.

Pauline this is lovely - the flower soft is perfect for the petals; it reminds me of the magnolia tree we had in Toronto!
