The Lone Tree

Sharing another sample, made recently for Crafty Individuals for HOCHANDA.
If you are interested in sourcing Crafty Individuals tree stamps, then please visit HERE.
This sample sees a That’s Crafty large, white/greyboard tag as the substrate.  They are invaluable substrates because you can throw so much media at them, you have no idea how much I saturated this tag when working with the Infusions!
This tag features a partially inked stamp from CI-287
Fortunately for me, there was a mishap, no one’s fault, the e-mail from Jean requesting samples was in my junk folder and it had been overlooked for some time before a tidying up session when I spotted it.  This meant that time was against me for making samples so you can imagine how thankful I was to have a stash of book pages, found papers, calico, etc that had previously been stained with Infusions.  This is why I always stain in batches because ultimately it is a timesaver when time is tight.
The book page had been stained too enthusiastically with Infusions so I flipped it over to stamp on the rear where there were some marks from the Rusty Car Infusions.
We were allowed to work with the crackle stamp on our samples, it came in useful for adding some stamped texture to some of the papers around the tree focal.
If you are a fan of Crafty Individuals, then look-out for their recent newsletter, featuring wonderful card samples from fellow DT member Florence along with a Special Offer.
Many thanks for your visit to this post.

    Very beautiful! I love how subdued it is, and that there are different textures. I hope you are ok? It’s been a long time since we have spoken and I fear my brain may have done something to offend you. 😦
