Thoughtful Branches {artful inspiration}

Like everyone else, I love all things Pinterest. I find so much inspiration on that site! For today's card, I did a search for "tree art" on there. I knew I wanted to use the tree die cut from the Thoughtful Branches bundle. (Only available until August 31, unless supplies run out before then) This is what I found today. I'm linking the original site to make sure I give the artist proper credit.

When I am going to use a painting for my inspiration, I'm always keeping in mind the stamp images I own and how I might possibly recreate or at least suggest the brush strokes of the original painting. For this project, I knew I could use the leaf canopy stamp from this set. 

I think it worked out well for a simple, yet striking card. The colorful portion of this card started out as Whisper White cardstock and measures 2.25 x 5.5 inches. 

Supply List:

The Thoughtful Branches bundle is only available until August 31, but if they run out before that day gets here, it will be too late to purchase it.  I have done several different samples with this bundle. Click here to see them.
