Sheltering Tree Watercolor Background

Sheltering Tree 056

This card was inspired by our apple trees that have tiny pink and white flowers just starting to open!  The sky was inspired by a perfectly beautiful day here in southern Colorado!

I did a quick and simple watercolor background by picking up various inks with an Aqua Painter, swiping and blending them on a piece of water color paper.  Before adding the watercolor background, I stamped the tree,  blooms and grass using Early Espresso, Blushing Bride and Garden Green inks, then heat embossed them using clear embossing powder.  That way, there wouldn't be any smearing when I added water.  The greeting is from the Paper Pumpkin kit Wish Big.
