These are the totes I made to hold the cards for the PTA give away. I love how the trees turned out on the front. What I did was take my ink pads, I used just the tips of each one, I inked the trunk of the tree first in basic brown, then I took the lightest color I was using and inked up the whole tree with it. I started one by one with the darker colors and started just lightly bouncing/tapping them onto the tree in just a few places. Then when I was done with all the colors I huffed on the stamp to remoisten it and stamped it onto the paper, turns out so pretty and random, no two are alike. I colored the leaves and trunk with my aqua painter. I did change the original tote pattern to make it smaller, you can see measurements in the thank you totes in my gallery.
