The Stamp Man ATC June Swap - Trees

The month of June is upon us and time for another ATC swap at The Stamp Man. This is my DT contribution to this month's challenge.

I used AIs to create the background. In the mix of gold, red and yellow colours I created a desert scene.  Can you make it out? I accentuated the mountain ranges with some gold and copper rub 'n buff then stamped the trees over the top using DI and Rubber Stampede (for the darkest tree). I think there is a red river running through the canyon between the trees. The tree stamp is from the TH collection Mini Holidays 2.

I found the quote that fitted, printed it out on A4 paper only to feel disappointed that it would look odd attaching it somewhere on the card. Taking a risk I used spray mount to stick the ATC to the A4 paper in exactly the place it had printed out before and ran it through the printer again. Phew it worked and placed the quote neatly at the top.

It says -
For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree
is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver.
Martin Luther

Inspiration was take from Gingersnap Creations - Stamp a scene and I am entering this for that challenge.

Before you go, I would love you to go over to Dezinaworld where the fabulous June has a new designer, Kim, whose work is just amazing and also June has a freebie just for today only. It is a collage sheet of vintage ladies which is well worth having. June is re-starting her Spot Prize challenge tomorrow and there is also a $10 shop prize for her monthly gallery challenge. Lots to take a look at - have fun.

Hope you had a fabulous May and here's to a warm and pleasant June.
