Asian Bonsai


Good morning!  It's Tuesday, so that means it's time for a new challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  Our sponsor for the week is Clearly Digi Stamps; since this week is our judged challenge, we also have a twist...buttons and bows!  As you can see, I'm "twistless"...I just wasn't loving either on this card....

I went with a pre-colored digi and printed some matching DP from the Asian Plants set.  I love this little bonsai tree!  I've added a dry embossed panel and layered some die cut shapes.  For embellishing, I've added some Swarovski flatbacks.

Image: Clearly Digi Stamps Asian Plants
Ink: Printer
Paper: PTI Spring Rain, Hibiscus Burst, and New Leaf, Asian Plants DP
Embellies: Swarovski Flatback Crystals in "Rose"
Extras: Spellbinder's Nestabilities, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder

I hope you will check out the rest of the DT's creations.  We'd love to see you play along...with or without the twist!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

 Artistic Inspirations: Die Cuts/Punches
Polkadoodles: In the Garden

Thanks for stopping by!

Such lovely image, and beautifully colored! Great colors, too.

Arg, I totally missed the part about your image and papers being printed. How cool is that? I'm becoming rather fond of pre-printed images, myself. While I still enjoy coloring, pre-colored items are a boom for those time-pressured moments! Again, very nicely done.

Hey, Angela, I haven't been doing much blog surfing lately--looks like I've missed some good stuff of yours! That bonsai tree is beautiful! I love all the pretty die cut layers.

It is a beautiful card Angela, loving those papers and how you have stacked your image to showcase it. Beautiful work.

It might be twistless - but either just wouldn't fit the beautiful simplicity of it! I love the layered mats & that sweet image :)

Twistless or not - it's a great card. I like how you layered the mats - looks great.

Oh. Can you email me, I tried to send you something to the email I have and it failed. Yipes!
