A colour layering stamp was missing from my life until I ordered the Hero Arts Color Layering Cardinal.
That was my first attempt to do layered stamping and it was not that easy than I expected. Very important to have 3 different shades from the same colour to layer, a stamping tool to be able to repeat the stamping and a good quality paper is essential too.
So here are my two cards with two colour variations.
For this, I used the following Ranger Archival colours:
Tree: Potting Soil, Olive
Cardinal: Rose Madder, Carnation Red, Vermillion, Jet Black
And here is the lighter version
Tree: Potting Soil, Ranger Distress Mawed Lawn
Cardinal: Pink Peony, Carnation Red, Vermillion, Jet Black
With red glitter liners I made berries to the branches so they turned into more fantasy trees than real pine trees :-)
