Monochrome Winter Tree

Hello Bloggers,

As it's turned a bit chilly, I thought it would be okay to post my 'Winter' card.  I did this using just one tree from the next 'In the Classroom ' set from Clarity - I used the 'naked' tree.  This set comes with four 'naked' trees and mantles which you can add over the top.  This is such a good idea, because you can so easily do the bark and branches a different colour from the leaves.

I have hundreds of tree stamps but I always love getting more! 

I masked off the central panel and stamped the tree randomly down the sides.
Then I masked off the edges and stamped the scene in the centre panel.  The strip of grass along the bottom of the tree is part of the set too.
The bird is one of the crows that came with the lovely Scarecrow set a while ago.

A bit of matting and layering and a few gems and you have your card!

Hope you like it and thanks very much for visiting xxx
