Spooky Old Tree

Spooky Old Tree

One of my favorite memories is reading to kids – my kids in particular.

One of their favorites was “The Spooky Old Tree”.

Making this piece was a blast, too, as I found myself reciting verses from the book as I cut, stamped and drew. 3 little bears…. great sleeping bear…. will they get passed Great Sleeping Bear?… all with the shivers!

Some of the FUNN little tricks I did on this was to use the owl from “I’ll Love You Forever” My Acrylix stamp set. He looks so sweet in the set and in pinks, blues and light green. But a bit more ominous here – just a bit. WHOO would know?

I doodled the stars and added a dot of paint for the centers.

The moon is B&T paper from the MRkit “Grace”.

I bent the tree stamp – love My Acrylix stamps – to make it more gnarly, dude.

The SPOOKY was made from cutting stamped images using “Extreme Caps” ( one of my go-to stamps ) “with the shivers”.

    Great card! The little owl is adorable, and the 'gnarled' tree is genius. 🙂
