A moonlit tree for Bee Crafty


 Hi There! I am here with another step by step tutorial for the Bee Crafty blog. 

I used Distress oxides in squeezed lemonade, mustard seed, broken china, blueprint sketch, faded jeans and black soot. 

The tree stamp is from the Beautanicals Large branch and tree set

The sentiment is from the Wordage Moon and stars set

The dotty stamp is from the Doodle Art Sunflower set

The skyline inkable is Horizon 1

I also used a fan brush, water, a gold mica spray, versamark ink, gold embossing powder, a 15cm square of smooth card, gold paper and an 18cm square card.


First use sponges or a blending tool to make a circle of mustard seed distress oxide ink for the moon on your stamping card. Add some squeezed lemonade around it.


Next add broken china, then blueprint sketch and faded jeans. You can go back in with previous colours to smooth it out.


Use the fan brush to splatter with water and then with the mica spray. Dry thoroughly.


Stamp the tree in versamark ink and heat emboss using the gold embossing powder. I brushed a little away before heating, along the bottom edge of the trunk so it didn't make a solid line.


Use the inkable to mask off just above the bottom of the tree trunk and blend black soot Distress oxide to ground the tree. 


Stamp the sentiment in versamark and emboss with the gold embossing powder.


Take the base card and stamp the dotty stamp in the three blue shades of distress oxides around the edge. Drag the sponge around the edge of the base card too.


Finally mat and layer onto the base card woth some gold paper.

Here is one last photo letting the light catch the embossing.

Thanks for looking and for all your lovely comments!

I love your beautiful gold embossed tree and sentiment over that bright and pretty blue spattered sky background Sally with the vivid yellow sun and halo effect changing the colour around it, and the dark foreground looks great too. The series of dots as a border is perfect as a background too. x
