The challenge at Global Design Project is to CASE designer Brian King's card.
The aspects of Brian's card that I took were: wide border, a dark mat around the centre panel, the layout of the panel and a one-layer centre panel.
I was playing around with the new Rooted in Nature stamp set, which will be available very soon - 1 June - when the new Annual Catalogue goes live. The beautiful image of the lone tree responds so well to direct to rubber colouring as you can see in this close-up. There are two shades of green in the foliage and by putting some extra ink on the trunk, there is even a faux texture to the tree bark.
Paper: Old Olive, Soft Suede, Whisper White
Stamps: Rooted in Nature
Inks: Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Stampin' Write markers in Soft Suede, Old Olive and Mossy Meadow.
