knotty tree...

trees.  i have so many tree stamps and i never get tired of them.  all those owls stamps i have and love feel at home with the trees!  i made this set of atcs for a tree swap that suzi is hosting.  this was kind of a fun atc to make.  i loved the stamp but didn't know what to add to it.  i had limited resources, since i made it while on vacation.  i decided it needed some texture and had made a knot for something else that was sitting on the table. i thought it would be fun to color the twine with distress ink and this is the end result!  little knots that look like buds.
