Morning, friends! So glad you stopped by!
It's time for another challenge at the ColourQ, and this one is perfect for the season. Check it out:
Green and yellow frustrate me almost as much as purple, so this was no walk in the park. For some reason I thought of those yellow ribbons tied around trees, lamp posts, and anything else that would stand still to show support for our troops overseas, so that's what I attempted to do.
The trees are from WPlus9's Funky Foliage, a much-neglected set in my stash. To "ground" them, I masked some hills and inked the bottom of the panel with Old Olive ink. The heat embossed sentiment is also from Funky Foliage.
A bit of Buttercup baker's twine from The Twinery looks like it is tied to the tree. I just used a small drop of Glossy Accents to adhere the knot. Love that stuff for adhering tricky embellishments.
This didn't turn out exactly as I had envisioned, but I think it would be perfect to send to a service member stationed overseas, especially a man. I had to restrain myself from adding buttons or bling to dress it up, though! I do wish that I had added some texture to the main panel with the Linen & Canvas impression plate, but I can live with it.
