Theme of the challenge: Trees... Did I do it?
This process was inspired by Michelle Zindorf's blog. I did direct-to-paper smearing of Whispers inkpads to create all the color in the background then used two stamps that each have multiple trees to create the distant and foreground groves. I also used 2nd generation stamping to create the tree reflections in the pond.
I applied a clear text sticker in the open field and then added gold sticker trim and four orange brads. When mounted on a black panel over a blue folded cardstock base, the card is complete.
