I previously made some pretty eclectic Brusho backgrounds...translation = what was I thinking when I chose some of these colors? These were not backgrounds but more like foregrounds. I thought- well how perfect for these die cut trees. I then looked through some of my "vintage" wood mounts and found some lovely old images to decorate the die cuts.
I used the same die cut set to cut the trunks out of corrugate. I painted the trunks and little wooden stars with gold acrylic paint. I found that the "stair step" height look of my three trees needed a balance so I included the star. Quick and easy-peasy.
