Twofer Card Challenge #6

Yes, that's right.  This month's Twofer Card Challenge wants to see trees on two cards for two different occasions.  Not having many tree stamps to choose from I made a couple of little scenes using Birchland from Altenew.
For the Spring card I masked the tree and inked the background with Distress Ink, stamping the leaves in the same green ink. The birdhouse and bird are colored with Zigs. 
For the Fall card I stamped three trees with Gathered Twigs DI and watercolored them with the same.  I lightly washed the grass and sky and then stamped a variety of leaf colors in the trees and on the ground. 

Thanks again for a wonderful challenge to stretch our stamps and our imagination.


  1. Such lovely, majestic trees, Bobby ... it's amazing how different you've made each card look with a change of the seasons! The spring card is fresh and bright and airy ... and the autumn one is full of warmth and rich colour ... and they're both fabulous! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Twofer! Hugs, Anita :)

  2. Wow! These are both so gorgeous Bobby! Love how you were inspired!

  3. Oh wow Bobby, the are both beautifully done!

  4. You're very welcome, Bobby! Thank YOU so much for supporting and joining in Twofer Card Challenge #6 with these two sensational park-like tree scenes! You have really rocked the seasons! Your leaves are brilliantly done!! Hugs, Darnell

  5. I think that I shall never see, a card with trees as grand as these! Only God can make a tree, but for YOU, my friend, it seems a breeze!
    [sorry to Kilmer for my interpretation, yay to you for this grand Twofer presentation!]

    1. You're quite the paraphrasing poet, Michele. :)

  6. Fantastic tree image Bobby! Love those tall trees! And so beautiful done in the seasons of spring and fall. Love your pretty birch tree with the bird house. The fall tree is gorgeous with the colours of the season. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Twofer Card Challenge! xx

  7. Your card scenes really show off that Altenew set! They are both gorgeous, and I love how you changed the species of trees - the magic of card making! Thanks for joining in the fun with us at the Twofer Card Challenge!

  8. Hello Bobby: I was just checking the Twofer Challenge to see how many fabulous cards were in there and I saw yours, how beautiful and awesomely creative they are!!
    Love the Spring card, with the sweet bird house and the tree full of new leaves, your Autumn card is just as beautiful, love the warm colors of this beautiful season all over it.
    I'm so glad you shared these two lovely cards on the Twofer Challenge.
    Big hugs,

  9. I am loving the tree stamp set you used, such beautiful tree's! Your spring card is just so sweet, I swear I can feel the sun shining down on me. Your fall card is so beautiful. I can feel the coolness in the air and the smell of fall. lol I love that fall scene-very serene! Hugs, Brenda
