Treeaholic Sal

Good morning, it's time for our mid month inspirational post and for the next few months each of the Design Team will be sharing their favourite five stamps, explaining what it is about them that appeals to us and also making a card with one of those stamps.

Our first DT to share her favourites is Sally and to those of us who know her it will come as no surprise to see more than one or two trees among her choices. Sal and I decided long ago that some of us suffer a rarely heard of affliction known as a Treeaholic, so I will now pass you over to my fellow Treeaholic.................

Our challenge is to choose our 5 favourite stamps and make something including some or all of them. It was so hard to choose only five! I had about 8 trees on my shortlist!

Here is my card...

I used my ink dusters to create the background with memento inks in dandelion, Rose bud, Danube blue Tuxedo black and Elderberry
Here are my stamps - I think this is the order I would choose!

 All of my favourite stamps are from Inkylicious.

I realise there are a couple of sets here, but if I have to choose just one from each set, it would be the biggest Northern Pine, the top buzzard from the Old Beech tree set, and the grasses from the picture perfect set !
