Today I am using the Forest Sayings set from Stampendous, Chameleon Markers and the Perfect Airbrush Spritzer from Perfect Paper Crafting. This set has everything you need to create a beautiful card. I made a fall birthday card, perfect for everyone you know who has a fall birthday (especially if you need a more masculine card!).


Stampendous:
SSC1224 Forest Sayings Clear Stamps
MMW811 Mixed Media White Paper
MEM01 Memento Ink Tuxedo Black


Plus:
Cardstock - Olive Green
Green Patterned Cardstock
Perfect Airbrush
Chameleon Markers - OL3, NU3, BR5, OR4, RD4, BL3, BK4

Instructions:
Step 1:  Fold a 6" x 9 1/2" piece of Olive Green cardstock in half to form an A6 card
Step 2: Stamp the tree and saying from the Forest Sayings set on a 3 1/4" x 4" piece of white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Step 3:  Use the Airbrush and markers to add color to the top of the tree, the "ground", and the "sky"', I used the two brown markers directly on the trunks, and the green to create a horizon line, edge with the black marker
Step 4:  Adhere the airbrushed image to a 3 1/2" x 4 1/4" green mat
Step 5:  Adhere pieces of the two patterned papers to the card front, add a strip of green across where the two papers meet
Step 6: Adhere the tree image and you're done!

Here's a close up of the airbrushed image:

This is a perfect fall card for lots of occasions. The airbrushing really adds so much texture. Need to add that tool to the wish list.
