Tip 1: If you find the Chocolate Chip colour to be very strong, try 'stamping off' first onto a scrap piece of paper then onto your card, this gives a lovely faded look which goes nicely with the paler green of Certainly Celery.
Tip 2: The shading on the edges of the trees was done by gently rolling the edges of the stamp onto the Choc Chip pad after it is inked with Cert Celery ink.
Tip 3: The leafy pattern of the trendy tree stamp has been stamped off the edge of the mat to make a frame
Tip 4: The hills were done using the torn edge of a piece of scrap paper as a mask, then smudging Certainly Celery ink over the mask.
I am thinking I might try to do a video to demonstrate the techniques - what do you think?
