Reject Oxide Trees

Hi! I got a new JOFY stamp a few days ago, and as I'm rubbish at colouring I was looking around for other options. I found some of my reject Distress Oxide experiments which were too murky or just not right for what I'd originally had in mind for them. I stamped the image onto the card, and again on one of the oxide rejects, then cut out the trees and pots from the rejects and paper pieced them onto the card. I used a glitter gel pen to colour the star and some of the details on the trees and pots, and then added Nuvo Drops to brighten the rejects up and add a bit of dimension. On the darker rejects, I used a white Uni Posca pen to brighten up the trees in places, and add some contrast. Here are my reject trees (I was going to call them Cock Up Trees, but it put me in mind of dogs marking their territory, and went for Reject Trees instead...):

I'm entering this one in the Curtain Call challenge, for the Cider colours:

What wonderful cards! I love how you've used "rejects" - the perfect way to recycle :) I think it's brilliant how you've created the sentiment, it's so original! Fantastic CAS cards, thanks for sharing them with us at MAWTT, Emma (DT)

I love that you've given your 'rejects' a new lease of life with these fab cards. Certainly not rejects in my eyes, love all the different versions.
Thanks so much for playing along at Happy Little Stampers, Anita x
