Summer Card Camp - Week 4

It's the last week of Summer Card Camp :(

I wanted to make my last card really great. Humm. Not sure it turned out that way.

Yesterday when I saw the new challenge colors I thought of a stamp I got a while ago but have never used. It's by Memory Box and is called "grove of trees". All day at work I was imaging how I could use watercolors to paint the landscape in. But then I thought it would be even better if I had pearlescent watercolors! So I stopped at Aaron Brothers on the way home and got some. The stamp itself is just a sideways V of trees so you have to add the hills so it looks right.

I did a quick test version to see how it would look. I didn't like it. So I put it away and didn't look at it for an hour. It's amazing how things can look better after an hour. It didn't exactly turn out the way I imagined, but you just have to go with what you have. And this is what I have. Hope you like it!
