Swingin' By

Hello! I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day filled with love and surprises. Today I have some cards to share with you using Our Craft Lounge's Swingin' By stamp set. I used the tree on all 3 of my cards, leaving the sentiment off of two as sometimes I need a card that has the wrong sentiment on it. This way I can just add the needed sentiment inside the card.
For my first two cards I stamped the image in black on white cardstock and colored the trees by using a lighter Tombow marker and picking up a darker color and then "smooshing" the marker into the leaves to make a tear drop pattern. This leaves a little white showing, which I liked.

For the next card I stamped on watercolor paper and colored and blended with a blender pen using Tombow markers.
Sometimes it is harder to use a larger image, but I really like how these turned out esp the last one. Which one is your favorite?
