Grow strong

Good morning, I'm back from a week away in Majorca and after I have ploughed through the washing I will download my photos and share some posts very soon. I took over is one for a taster of our daily Pine Walk.

In the meantime it's time for my Monday DT make for Visible Image and today I am using stamps from the
and the single tree from the
I made an alcohol ink background, using glossy card stock, gradually adding drops until I was happy.

I then stamped the tree and embossed it with Seth Apter's baked texture embossing powder..I love these powders as they have "bits" in which give a very different effect.
I then stamped and black embossed the sentiment and also some leaves from the super 
Create it set

This sentiment works so well with the tree stamp.
I then matted and layered up my card
