A close up of mask and micas, I love the sheen.

I have made this card to apply for DT team at Creative Expressions.

I started off by stamping around my card blank with a tree stamp, just using top branches ... with a mint pigment ink pad and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

I then used a leaf mask which I embossed on my Grand Calibur. I used Versamark through the mask and then brushed on mica powder ( these are just fantastic when the light hits them). I cut into quarters and matted onto brown card and added then to main card.

I used some fine hession type fabric as a border.

I coloured it Lolita ( from Saturated Canary) with copics, The clouds and ground were done with chalks adding a few birds in the sky with a black pen. I cut out and stamped around the edges with a stamp called 'Field of Sky' by Stamp Addicts ( a very useful stamp). I then again mouted on brown card. I added a tree cut using a Memory Box die painting the leaves with Mica Paints. I used a ticket stamp for the sentiment which I stapled to the corner. I then added to card.

Lastly I added some buttons with a bow from bakers twine.

I have also entered the card into the following challenges:
