Leaves of a Tree – Summer

OK…here is my third season we did for my Leaves of a Tree season class last month!  I really like this one, too!  It uses a background made with Watercolor Crayons…something I hadn't pulled out in a long time!

 

 

I started with a base of Marina Mist cardstock and layered on Blushing Bride.  Along the right side, I used three patterns in Nursery Nest Designer Paper package for panels.  I used my Watercolor Crayons, Shimmery White Cardstock and scribbled on the colors of Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride and Marina Mist in the background, then I used my AquaPainter and water to blend out the crayons.  Buff it to get off all the excess waxy crayon.  Then I overstamped the Leaves of a Tree image with Black Stazon Ink for a silhouette look!  I cut it with the 3" Circle Tie and layered on the Scallop Circle Duo Diecut of Pear Pizzazz.  It is popped up on the front with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I added the word Enjoy from Stampin' Up!'s You're A Gem stamp set in Black Stazon on a strip of Marina Mist cardstock and did a pigtail cut edge on the side.

 

Only one more season to go…Fall…then you can tell me which one was YOUR favorite!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  I'm in frantic mode trying to get everything done for the holidays.  My mom and I are going out shopping today, so I hope to get a good dent in it.

Such a great idea of making a card for each season….will be fun to see them side by side to compare the seasons.  TFS!
