Trees at Tuesday Taggers

Amazing scope for unending designs this week from Tuesday Taggers and very appropriate. As the temperature plummets and nights get colder the trees are beginning lose their leaves, The acer in my garden has turned the most beautiful red and will soon be naked I guess, so a challenge about trees is rather pertinent.

I've been doing a bit of brayering with adirondak pads and torn paper to make a background then stamped an elusive images tree and a flock of crafty individuals birds on with black versamark. A computer generated sentiment coloured with a bit more ink finished it off.

You don't have to stick to winter trees for the challenge, any sort of tree on any type of artwork is fine, in fact the more variety the better, and there's a brilliant prize this week from our sponsors at The Craft Barn of a £15 e voucher to spend in their on line shop. They've a fantastic range of stock and some difficult to get hold of stamps too, with a remarkable service.

Come tag along on Tuesday Taggers, I'm sure everyone has a stamp or an image or even a photo of a tree to use. We really love seeing all your entries, there's some amazing talent out there!

x Michelle
