O for Oak

Back with my next postcard for The Craft Barn's Alpha Dictionary Challenge where the letter this time is O.   The word I've chosen to do is OAK as in trees, leaves etc.

So I've used an oblong piece of card.  stamped the Oak Leaves with the Triple Meadow Green ink pad leaving an oval plain.   I've stamped the small Oak Tree in the middle and then used edges of the big Oak Tree to stamp round the edges to give that overgrown feel.  I've drawn an oval round the tree and painted a sunsetty scene (I seriously don't like this but have no time to do again).  It's just finished with the letter Thicker and the dictionary definition.

Sorry I didn't get chance to visit you all last time - we were on holiday in Wales with little 4G and we had to sit in a car park to upload my post.  Back home now so I hope to visit you all this time. 

Many thanks for visiting me!

  1. This is beautiful, Elaine. I adore the way you have outlined the card with the oak leaves and placed the tree in the center. I also appreciate that you still use the letters, too.

    Hope your holiday was fun.

  2. I love how the embossed tree catches the light! Good idea to frame your postcard with the oak branches too.

  3. I love your collage all about the oak! It comes together so well, and the embossed tree finishes it off perfectly.

  4. This is a lovely postcard. I like the metallic, twinkle on the oak tree in the middle and the other oak elements represent the word perfectly.

  5. A beautiful page, I love the tree surrounded by the leaves.

  6. A beautiful page. I love the leaf edging around the oak tree.

  7. Lovely page and thank you for joining in the Craft Barn Alpha/Dictionary challenge. Good luck with the draw xx

  8. A lovely postcard. I like the frame you created around the main image.
