Crafty Indivduals No.1 Challenge

The very first Crafty Individuals Challenge is "Simply Square". Having been a huge fan of these stamps, & own half the shop I was thrilled to see a challenge go up :0)

I coveted these trees for ages but as my creativity took a serious nosedive in September, I decided to wait until I felt up to cracking open the inks again. I bought these a couple of weeks ago & thought they would be perfect for this challenge.

I created my square on gloss cardstock using 4 shades of my favourite Adirondack Dye inks; Stonewashed, Denim, Lettuce & Pesto. I blended these to create a third green shade & then stamped my trees in black Rangers Archival Ink.
