Family Tree

When I sat down and looked at Theresa Momber's, "Farm Life" set I saw this tree with the fencing and was wishing I had a small pony to stamp in the background but... alas... none could be found.  Soooo... I decided this tree was perfect drawing of what one would think of when they thought of a "family tree".  Big.. full... and darn near perfect!

I proceeded to use my Nestabilities to cut our the other trees in the distance and focus on just this big ole tree.

I colored it with my copics and stamped "family" right about it.  Then I thought... hmmm.. sort of a plaque of sorts.  So I took my caramel card stock and used my Tim Holtz Distress Inks to make some line across it to resemble wood.  Then I mounted some nail heads to it to finish off my ":plaque".

Using my Cuttlebug Herringbone embossing folder I added texture to the card base.  That always reminds me of old pictures, old walls, so I thought it was perfect.

After looking at it again I wished I had roughed up the edges a bit.  Guess I'll save that idea for another time.

I hope you have a great weekend and there still time to enter in the drawing for some free blog candy!!  Make sure you comment under the Monday post below!  *smile*

Great card Tina. I LOVE the herringbone! I thought about your "Yummy Family" card when I was looking at all the candy corn projects in Woman's Day or whatever magazine it was. That should have been featured along with the projects!
