Stampin Up! Lovely as a Tree card

Stampin Up! Lovely as a tree

Today's card uses the Lovely as a Tree stamp set. This is a very versatile stamp set, and I've just used one stamp from it. I found this idea on Pinterest, by a lady called Heather North. I've changed it slightly, but this is my version. 

There are many, many ways of using this set, but today I've used Post It notes and sponges.

First tear some Post It notes along the sticky strip, then attach them to your card stock

 Then begin to sponge colour onto the hole in the middle. I've used Mint Macaron, Blushing Bride, and Tempting Turquoise here. 

When you're happy with the sponging, carefully peel off the Post It notes and you're left with a beautiful irregular shape block of colour.

I stamped this image with Stazon, but for the image at the top of this post used Chocolate Chip.

A very effective use of colour I think. You could use watercolour paper and use aqua painters to give a different look. Hope you like it!
