I drew my own fluffy tree template then used removeable double sided tape to keep it in place at the bottom 2/3rds of my card. I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink Peeled Paint for my tree color. After I got the coverage I wanted using the Tim Holtz Blending Tool, I sponged the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut Stain.

Next, I removed my bottom tree mask and adhered the other half of the template to the top of my card and stamped my image LIL MICHELLE SWINGING BY. I stamped Michelle on a separate piece of white CS and colored her, cut her (only) out and sponged her edges with Walnut Stain. Then I colored in the parts on the card that I did not cut out and colored outlines of areas that would be covered by my image. Then popped up Michelle.
