Tree Huggers Mixed Media Tag


Maybe you didn't notice how much I am in love with this IndigoBlu stamp set but I have a new variation for you today.  I'm so excited to be a guest for Try it on Tuesday today for their new challenge Trees are Green.  I had the perfect tree stamp in mind and decided to go quite literal and stamp it in green onto some Distress inky paper.


I layered over an inked tag, which I stamped with the IndigoBlu script background stamp and used clear crackle past over.  I then sponged with Vintage Photo to highlight the crackle.


I just love this, though it turned quite dark along the edges.  I used a Tim Holtz charm and twine to finish it off.  One of my favorite quotes is, "I am most alive among the tall trees."  Sometimes it is just that simple...
