Trees are Poems in the Sky

Framed or Easel is the optional twist this week over at Twisted Thursday, The Outlawz Our sponsor this month is MHK Designs. I used the set I've Been Framed which has several different frame styles and quotes.
I used Copic Markers G21, G94 and E55 for the trees and grass then added Distress Inks, Tattered Rose, Seedless Preserves and Tumbled Glass,  followed by some water splashes for texture. The card base was edged with Copics followed by two layers of Tim Holtz Kraft Core papers diecut with Gina Marie dies. A bit of ribbon and one green pearl finished the card.

Thanks for stopping by. I enjoy reading your comments!

  2. This is beautiful, Jean. The textured cardstock works perfectly with this elegant image. That touch of satin ribbon with an Asian feel is perfect. And your coloring is superb, as always. Wow!

    1. That ribbon is kind of special and I hate using it up. Isn't that silly? And, someday my children would just toss it in the garbage, so USE it!! LOL1 Thank you, Melanie!

  4. Ooh, I love the background....sort of a Bokeh, dreamsicle sort of sky! So, so beautiful! I understand about the ribbon. I have some embellishments I love and I dread the day I go to use them and they are gone.

    1. Nice that you added the term "Bokeh", Katrina. I was teaching a class yesterday and couldn't remember the term :)

  6. Jean your card is lovely I do love these sentiments they are so well said. As you know I am leaving Outlawz's at the end of the month and I am sorry to leave when the team only has 5 members but I have so much going on and I am so involved with My Bestie I had to let one go so I am sorry that it has to be Outlawz, but I have enjoyed being a part of the team with you and the other ladies you all are so lovely and friendly and I will miss you all. Big hugs Andrea

    1. Andrea, I truly understand why you have to let something go. I wonder myself sometimes if I can keep up this pace. I will miss you, so do drop by now and then and say hello. I'm glad we got to know each other at least a bit through The Outlawz. Enjoy your Bestie work!
