FTTC26

Hello! I hope you're all enjoying your Tuesday so far. I hesitated to play along with the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge today because it's to create a monochromatic card. I don't do very well with them and always struggle to make a card, but since I have a lot of free time on my hands today, I decided to take the challenge. I stamped the tree image with Versamark on white cardstock and embossed it with white ep. I sponged all over it with Certainly Celery ink and was pleasantly surprised with the soft look. I leafed through my book of sketches that I write down, and found this one and decided it would work for this card. I used 2 different Certainly Celery designer papers by SU! and layered everything with white or celery. I added a sentiment from the So Many Sayings set, and 3 white dewdrops for interest. The tree stamp is "Willow" by Impression Obsession.
Thanks for stopping by today for a few minutes.......it's always great to have you :)

You have used one of my favourite sets of designer paper and the emboss resist tree looks cool and restful.
