CCEE Flowers and Trees

Cindy Motherway is our CCEE hostess for the month of August, and this Monday she has challenged us to make a card with flowers and trees on it. Thanks, Cindy! I had fun with this one.



I saw this faux wood fence technique in SleepyinSeattle's (Joanne) SCS gallery yesterday (she's the Featured Stamper this week!) and knew I wanted to try it for my CCEE challenge card this week. It was so easy to do, too! I lightly ran my Going Gray, Creamy Caramel, and Craft White stamp pads over the kraft cardstock and then drew my fence lines. It really looks like a weathered fence.

Why not join us in this challenge? You can get all the details on our CCEE Stampers blog.

Stamps: Happy Day (There She Goes); Season of Friendship (SU); Delightful Doodles (SU); Bodacious Bouquet (SU)
Cardstock: Whisper White, Kraft, Bashful Blue, Barely Banana
Ink: Close to Cocoa, Mellow Moss, Buckaroo Blue, Always Artichoke, Craft White, Going Gray, Creamy Caramel
Accessories: MS zig-zag punch,flower punch, blue brads, yellow eyelets, cloud template, stamp-a-ma-jig, blender pens
