Wonderful Year OnStage Swap

This was one of my favorites from the swaps at OnStage. I love the copper embossing with Mint Macaron; so simple, yet so elegant!

And since this is one of the (*ahem* few) stamp sets I DON'T have, it's nice to have a sample to show my stamping ladies. I had to email Anna to ask how she did the tree. I kind of figured it was a negative from a die cut, but the coloring is so smooth and even, I needed to know how she did it. Did she spritz it? Use the sponge brayer? Turns out she sponged some of her swaps and used a sponge dauber on others. I think the Shimmery White cardstock probably helps make the color go on evenly. I'm definitely going to try it. Thanks for the help, Anna!

Here's the "How To"
 Tree: Scrap of cardstock at least 3" x 4" to die-cut tree
 Star: Scrap of Copper Foil Sheet 3/4" x 3/4"
 Image: Shimmery White 3-3/4" x 5"
 Card base: Mint Macaron 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" scored and folded at 4-1/4"
  1. Die-cut medium tree from Perfect Pines Framelits Dies in cardstock scrap and use negative to sponge tree shape in Mint Macaron ink onto Shimmery White cardstock.
  2. Rub Embossing buddy over and stamp greeting with VersaMark ink, then cover with copper embossing powder. Tap off excess and heat with heat tool until melted.
  3. Adhere to card base. Die cut star in Copper Foil and adhere with glue dot. Add strips of Washi Tape.
