Card-io Woodland Walks

Good Morning Crafters
Today we have a beautiful step by step by Pandy using the new Card-io stamp sets.
Check out the Personal Impressions website to see all the new stamps.
To create the above project you will need the following:
A piece of canvas
Adirondack Paint Dabbers (Lettuce, Citrus, Sail Boat Blue, Pool, Pink Sherbet Sunshine)
Card-io stamp – Woodland Walks
Tissue Paper
Memento ink pad Black Tuxedo
Needle and thread and some seed beads
Step 1
Keeping the paint very dry – scrub over the canvas piece with the blues at the top and the greens at the bottom.  Rub a line of pink along the horizon – then add a big spot of yellow for the sky and soften round the edge with a bit of pink.
Step 2
Stamp loads of the little trees onto the tissue paper with the Memento ink and cut round each in a rough shape.
Step 3
Use just a smear of PVA on the canvas to stick the tissue trees down,
you can build up as many layers as you wish.
Step 4
Take the needle and thread and sew with back stitch. 
Make long stitches on the front of the canvas and short stitches on the back, add a few beads to some of the front stitches to give dimension and texture.
Step 5
The completed piece is then layered over a piece of green tissue paper and mounted onto a sheet of Sweet Dixie grey card, scored and folded in half, with brads
This is another way of using those beautiful Card-io stamps!
Thank you for visiting today!
