A Passion for Papertrey - Material Girl!

Good Morning, hope you had a wonderful weekend! This card is for A Passion for Papertrey challenge, I haven't had the chance to participate for ages!

I've had this idea in my head for ages, although originally I was thinking of fussy cutting the leaves, then thought better of it as it would take Aaaaages (as Dillon often says, LOL!!!) Then I noticed a similar aperture in a magazine... typical hey? great minds think alike and all that!
I have cut the trunk of the tree out before stamping the branches and heat embossing with distress embossing powders. Then I  cut some cloudy shapes free hand to mask the background and blended some blue distress inks for a sky! I wanted it much lighter but I was a little heavy handed! LOL! The fabric part of my card is the felt grassy area! I have die cut a square in the card base so the aperture goes all the way through!



Supplies: Paper: PTI: stamper's white;
Stamps: PTI: Through the Trees;
Ink: Archival: black; Distress inks: Distress Embossing powder;
Dies: Sizzix: Tim Holtz: on the edge; Spellbinder's Nestabilities: square; 
Other: Felt; ink blending tool; 3D foam;





Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful happy Monday! Thank you too for your well wishes with the 'pox' LOL! Well I'm very pleased to tell you that we are over the very worst of it, their spots are drying up now, although we have to remind them to not pick (yuk!) as we don't want any little scars but I'm very proud of how well and wonderful my little angels coped, God Bless them!!! BiG HuGs Kim :)
