Card - Gentle Trees

I started with a Stampin Up Mellow Moss card.  I stamped a piece of Whisper White with Versamark ink and the Harlequin background stamp.  I clear embossed the background then watercolored it with Regal Rose ink using an Aqua Painter. I wanted to tone it down so I stamped Lovely as a Tree in Mellow Moss on the bottom third of a piece of vellum and clear embossed them also.  I stamped the greeting from Little Bit of Cheer stamp set with Regal Rose and embossed it also.  I cut the background to leave a large border.  I cut the vellum just a bit bigger.  I placed three white candy dots above the trees.  I placed Zots behind the candy dots and a bit of vellum adhesive behind the trees to adhere the vellum to the background.  I adhered the background to the card front.
