This card also qualifies for the distressing challenge at the Crafty Creations blog. I sponged the edges in chocolate chip for that aged / distressed look.
I used the March Key Ingredients kit from Taylored Expressions for all the paper on this card. I really like the organic feel of the dp with the tree.
I first stamped the circle leaves on white cardstock and then stamped the tree in chocolate chip directly on top of the baja breeze image. I then colored in the entire tree with my prismacolor pencils, blending with gamsol. It was a total experiment to actually use the prismacolors & gamsol on top of a stamped image, and I am happy to report, it worked just fine. ;p
