FABULOUS LEMON TREE

This is for today's INSPIRATION, Friday's LIMITED SUPPLY ,and Wednesday's SKETCH CHALLENGES. It is so funny how so many people can look at 1 picture and see so many different things. The first thing I saw was the tree on the plaque could not believe how much it resembled the Fab Flower. The next thing I saw was the basket of lemons and instantly thougth "lemon tree". So here it is. I inked the flower w/green galore then used garden green marker along the edges, huffed and stamped, then inked it up again with just garder green. Cut out the center section of the garden green and popped it up on the other flower. I had some wood grain dp so I inked up a weather background stamp with close to cocoa and stamped the dp, made it look like an aged tree trunk, trimmed the bottom with some decorative scissors called grass. I sponged the bottom and egdes of layer 2 with green galore then stamped the fern tip from watercolor minis in green galore and garden green randomly to look like grass sprigs then matted this on green cs and popped up the flower to make it look like a tree. Card base is white with lemons randomly stamped using yo yo yellow. Layer 4 is the solid lemon again stamped in yyy with Lemonade 5c handwritten with the garden green marker. Hope you like it.
RECIPE:
Stamps: Fabulous Flowers, Citrus & Such, Watercolor Minis, Non SU Weathered Background
Ink: Green Galore, Garden Green, YoYo Yellow, Close to Cocoa
