It's challenge time on Tando Creative and this month's theme is Rustic Charm. There's a prize on offer - the winner can choose from this fab list!
I cut one end off a large journaling block and inked it in green. The rest of the block is inked in two shades of blue with a torn paper "cloud" template. I turned the green piece around and stuck it down as the ground for the tree to sprout from.
The twigs are gathered from my garden and tied with raffia at the base. Stamped apples and a tag hanging from a branch finish off the tree and the whole thing is finished with a "rusty wire" hanging loop. Always keen to make use of what I already have rather than buy new supplies, I used florist wire coated with Vintage Photo Distress embossing powder to make the rusted wire.
