Batik Resist Trees

First of all, thanks Dini, for the tutorial! I'd done batik resist, but never tried layering the images. I started out putting water and Sage Green on the paper and dried it. Then, I stamped 2 trees on either side and clear embossed. More water and Shabby Shutters. I stamped 2 more trees and a few of the 'background trees' and clear embossed. More water, peeled paint. A few more tops of trees and clear embossing. Last color was the Pine needles. As soon as I dried it, I ironed off the powder, stuck a Tim Holtz mirrored star and a label with the sentiment. I tried adding a ribbon and some other stuff...even an extra mat...and it didn't work. So, for once, I left well enough alone. And yes...this very well could be one of those 'end of the world' signs, because we know I am NEVER one to keep it simple! HAH! ;)
