Deconstructed Sketch #166

Deconstructed Sketch #166 cropped by Tammy Hershberger

Hello friends, how are you?  I’m fabulous!  I’m currently enjoying a 6-day weekend, using a few vacation days from work to get some odd jobs done around the house, and just NOT have to go to work!  Ahhhhhh…..

It’s time today for another Deconstructed Sketch!  I think you’ll like this one…

Cool, right?  Yeah, I like this one a lot!  My first thought was “what am I going to use for that long center panel?” and then it hit me that I just got the Topiary Trio stamp set and dies from Papertrey Ink!  The tallest tree was perfect for this sketch!

Deconstructed Sketch #166 by Tammy Hershberger

I die-cut the tree from Old Olive cardstock, and sponged the edged with Jellybean Green hybrid ink from My Favorite Things.  Then using some Whip Cream card stock, I die cut the Vertical Greetings Die-Namics and stamped it in Natural hybrid ink with the BG Linen background stamp.  I stamped the pot for the tree with Kraft hybrid ink, and the tree trunk with Hot Fudge hybrid ink, then added the tree with dimensional adhesive.  On the Razzleberry card stock panel behind the tree, I stamped the BG Romantic Script background with Razzleberry hybrid ink.  Then the panel behind that was cut from Old Olive card stock using Blueprints 13.  On the Razzleberry card stock base, I added a panel cut from Blueprints 13 with River Rock card stock, and stamped with the Cover-a-Card Greenery from Impression Obsession in Grout Gray hybrid ink.  I finished the design with a scalloped border cut from Old Olive card stock with the Blueprints 14 Die-Namics, and some enamel dots.

On the inside I added a sentiment from the Topiary Trio stamp set stamped in Razzleberry hybrid ink, and a tree stamped in Grout Gray hybrid ink.
