Easy events ... sort of

Hopefully if the weather is bearable I will be climbing one or two of the Wainwright mountains in the Lake District today.  There are 214 fells/mountains listed in the books by Alfred Wainwright and I have so far climbed only 11 of them!  I hope to complete all 214 in my lifetime, in memory of my late partner, Nick, as he had always said he wanted to do this... next month is the anniversary so I thought it was time to start and a few friends are joining me so it should be fun :).

Anyway, onto todays project which uses the tree stamp from the Easy Events stampset.  I've used the image only and stamped this 3 times in Wild Wasabi ink onto a Sahara Sand tall card base.

The garden themed image is created from cutting out scraps of card in a watering can shape inked with Sahara Sand/Wild Wasabi ink using a sponge dauber; a flower pot from Pumpkin Pie, run through the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder using the big shot machine; and some scraps of funky foan (not Stampin' Up!) cut into welly shapes.  I've mounted the items onto a square of Wild Wasabi DSP and matted it with Certainly Celery and then Wild Wasabi cardstock.

I've used the Timeless Type Junior Alphabet die to cut the 70 numbering in Pumpkin Pie.
