1. For the background I started with scattered straw distress oxide on mixed media card. I then added worn lipstick a third of the way up and then festive berries at the top. I made sure as I went along to blend each one into each other, creating a nice sunset effect.

  2. On another piece of mixed media card, the same size as the sunset piece. I painted the trunk of a tree on the left hand side and created brunches. Adding in leaves and grass for detail. Making sure there was a branch for adding the swinging girl.

  3. I cut around the tree and backed it with double sided sticky tape.

  4. I carefully stamped the girl onto card using versafine black ink and cut around her.
  5. I backed the sunset onto black card and then stuck the tree onto the background, adding the swing into the branches of the tree. Then added onto a card blank.

  6. To finish the card I added a small clear sticker.
