Peaceful Tree Scene

Good Tuesday morning.  My project today was made for the Splitcoaststampers Clean and Simple challenge. A few weeks ago I watched Dawn’s Watercolor Trees video tutorial on the WPlus9 Design Blog.  I had to hop on over to Ellen’s and check out the Coming Up Roses stamp set used on the video and I got it in the mail last night.  The set has several images that work well for scenery as well as some wonderful multistep rose images.

Here’s what I came up with.

I stamped the tree and branch brown and then filled in the tree top using light and darker green and aqua and turquoise inks.  I lightly touched several of the leaves and trunk with my waterbrush to give a watercolor appearance.

I put a fine layer of water on the ground area around the tree trunk and then applied light green ink. I filled in the grass area with the same textured stamp used on the tree top and then lightly added added a few delicate flowers.  I just couldn’t resist adding the three blue birds for a touch of dimension and for a sweet finishing touch.KC WPlus9 Coming Up Roses 1 right
