Thinking of You - Another SCS CAS Challenge

I can't believe how fast the three months of doing the CAS challenge samples has gone! I only have two more weeks left - I have really enjoyed making the samples. This week the challenge is to make a masculine card. Masculine cards are always a challenge for me and I usually rely on patterned paper. I really wanted to make a one layered card or at least an all stamped card. So this one of the cards I came up with. I stamped the tree and bird (one image) with Versafine Onyz Black on PaperTrey's (PTI) Stampers Select paper and stamped it again on some scratch paper and cut that one out to use for a mask. I traced a rectangular Nestability around the image and then put Post It notes around each edge where I traced. I sponged the sky with Memento ink and stamped the grass image from PaperTrey Everyday Button Bits below the tree and bird. I removed the Post It notes and stamped the sentment. I paper pieced the bird using PTI's Bitty Dots Basic patterned paper and painted the tree with SU! markers and an aquabrush. I matted the image with PTI Poppy Red paper and attached that panel to the card front with dimensionals.
Thanks for coming by!
