Smashing Trees

Happy Monday morning to you.  This weekend I decided to finally try a technique that has been on my "to do" list for a long time - Acrylic Smashing.  The how-to can be found HERE on SCS.  I followed  this weeks CPS 213 Sketch and came up with this card.  Here's a picture of the sketch:

CPS #213

I  used two colors of blue acrylic paint for the sky and two colors of green for the trees and ground.  The acetate is actually a recycled carrier sheet from a PTI stamp set (I save everything).  I added pressed leaves to the patterned paper for some added interest.

This technique is so easy and so much fun, I made another card which I will share with you later this week.

Products Used:
Stamp Sets - PTI Through the Trees and Daily Designs
Cardstock - PTI Ripe Avocado and Fine Linen
PTI Pacific Vineyard patterned paper
Ink - Black Stazon, Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo Distress Inks
Nestabilities dies
PTI Woodgrain impression plate
Acetate sheet
