Hi Everyone! Thank you for your lovely comments.
The background behind the tree was created by brayering a light coat of Baja Breeze on Whisper White cardstock, then stamping the background stamp from Flores Suaves with Old Olive (stamped off first before stamping on background). I stamped the Medallion background in Baja Breeze, then using sponge daubers stamped Old Olive, Soft Suede and Early Espresso. I stamped off the first image of the Medallion and then the second stamping (after huffing of course :-)) on the background. Then I stamped the tree from Lovely As A Tree in Early Espresso. I used the distressing tool and using a sponge dauber with Soft Suede, sponged the edges and lightly sponged over the entire background to give it an antiqued look.
HTH and thanks for looking and commenting :-)
