TMTA - Triptych

TMTA theme this week is Triptych. I felt a bit daunted when I got home from work as I have had a very hectic day but all the stress washed away as I created my background. I used TH Distress inks, Brushed Corduroy, Peeled Paint & Spiced Marmalade blended several times & sprtized with water in between. I decided on an Autumn feel so stamped the dried background with text, leaves & ferns. Added a few butterflies & then stamped my trees. The centre tree is Peeled Paint & each tree either side is Brushed Corduroy. The only annoying things ws it almost fell as this picture was taken. The light is fading so it is the best I could get!!
