Lovely as Lovely as a Tree.....

I recently decided to use an old favourite....Lovely as a Tree.  It really is one of my go to sets, especially when I need a traditional Christmas tree image, as the single pine tree stamp is perfect for that!!  But I have decided to use the other stamps in the set I need to boost my collection of male cards.
I used Can You Case It's colour challenge as inspiration this time.....

And my 3 blues are Soft Sky, Pool Party and Marina Mist.
Here's the collection (yes there is a stow away tree in's from Sheltering Tree)

I've also used an Early Espresso button on each card, and some silver metallic thread.   All 4 cards are a variation on the theme, which is a neutral image around a coloured sponged and masked area on the card front.

Hope you like them..... ;-)
Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Sheltering Tree
Colours: Whisper White, Soft Sky, Pool Party, Marina Mist, Early Espresso
Hope you all have a great weekend. 
Happy stamping......Manda x
