Another new stencil for me is of birch trees. Love these.
I chose a waxed paper background with a crackled appearance and taped the stencil down. By blocking off the trunks I was able to ink in the sky background and the snowbanks. Then I removed the blackout paper and carefully inked just the tree trunks with brown.
After removing the stencil there was not enough definition of the trees aso I used a fine line brown pen to line along the left of them all.
I mounted on dark blue-gray and stamped a sentiment on light blue-gray. The latter got a flag end and three brown rhinestones.
