Welcome frame

You’ll need
kit stamp set

watercolour cardstock
Toffee Crunch, Rich Cocoa & Espresso Truffle Memento inkpads
Intense Black Hero Arts inkpad
Spun Sugar & Hickory Smoke Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink

Step by step
1 Cut a panel of watercolour cardstock slightly smaller than 6×4” to fit the frame.
2 Apply Spun Sugar and Hickory Smoke Distress Ink to a glass mat and mix with water using a water brush. Add a pink wash to the top half of the piece and grey to the bottom.
3 Stamp three of the round trees using Espresso Truffle ink into the centre of the piece, spaced apart equally.
4 Add trees using the Rich Cocoa ink slightly further back, then repeating with the Toffee Crunch ink to create the trees that are furthest away. Stamp a couple of trees at the very front on either side using Intense Black ink.
5 Stamp the sentiment as shown using Intense Black ink, then place the finished panel into the frame.
