This wonderful retired set has 12 stamps that I see as a treasure trove of wonderful outdoor scenes. I actually stamped the hat on the paper and painted the tree around it. After finishing most of the picture I painted the hat and royally messed it up. I painted another one, cut it out and mounted it over the big mess. It actually looks better popped up a layer and looks like it is really hanging. You know what they say about mistakes turning into the most wonderful addition. I hand painted the tree with reinkers and drew grass all around the tree and can with a fine tip artist pen. (everyone should get one of those....cheap, waterproof and can do lots). I used Watercolor Minis fern stamp to create greenery, flowers and leaves on the tree.
