Paper:  Basic Black, Garden Green, Whisper White (SU!)

* * * * *
I sponged the background of the Whisper White cardstock randomly with Certainly Celery and Garden Green ink.  I stamped the image twice in Always Artichoke and colored in the leaves with a Garden Green Stampin' Write marker.  I cut the images to size and sponged around the edges with Garden Green.

I dry-fit the stamped image pieces on the Garden Green background paper, used my Stamp-a-ma-jig for the placement of the sentiment, and stamped it in Basic Black ink.  I then ran the Garden Green background paper through the Big Shot with the Forest Branches embossing folder.  I lightly sponged Certainly Celery ink on top to highlight the branches.

I mounted all the pieces as per the picture above.
