Going to CHA - Through The Trees!!

Well I am going to the CHA Super Show Friday and Saturday. I have scheduled some posts while I'm gone but I hope to have some good pictures to upload of the Super Show and the SCS superstampers that I will meet there! I am so excited!
Anyway, I just got my PaperTrey order and had to ink up this image from Through the Trees right away. I used the SCS color challenge colors - Ruby Red, Bashful Blue and Soft Suede (Close to Cocoa). I inked up the image with Versamark and Close to Cocoa ink, stamped it on PaperTrey white card stock and then embossed it with clear EP. Then I sponged Bashful Blue over the image and wiped off the resisted ink. Then I stamped the two birds with Ruby Red (used the marker to ink up the stamp). I used a Cuttlebug border embossing folder to the right of the image and then matted that panel on Soft Suede. I used a white gel pen to fill in the "cracks" in the trees.
Thanks for coming by!
