Two excellent trees. A Barbara Bargain!

Hi there!
Thanks for popping in.
I have been meaning to tell you.
Remember last week on Monday, 
I did a tree composition using the reinkers and cut n dry felt?


When I used these two trees?



Well, I decided to do a Barbara’s Bargain on them,
and take them out of their respective sets,
and put them together.
But this is the first day that I have actually got round 
to telling you about it!!!
So now you can buy both trees alone and unmounted, 
for the princely sum of
was £14.50 
£9.98
CLICK HERE

Here are a couple more pieces I have done using them…


Brayered background on Claritycard.



Multiple ink generations on our Gelli/Stencil card.



Silhouettes on a brightly brushed background.


They certainly are very versatile and lovely.

Got to go.
See you tomorrow!


Love and hugs,

    6. Well relented and put the heating on for about 2hrs and then the bloddy boiler went bang so no heat, no hot water, telephoned and booked a callout for tomorrow! Honestly it so loud the doors rattled! I nearly had heart failure, so I am again tucked up in bed with my snazzy socks on! Xx

  5. Our trees are just beginning to change and so reflect your chosen colours. With all the mist last week, the muted tones are also typical. Have the set somewhere but at the moment, easier to order the pair, I think! Thanks, Barb. ;~}

  20. Beautiful artwork and so many ideas on how to get the most from these great stamps x

  21. Even now, it's still amazing to see how the same two trees can have so many different looks and be so versatile. Hope you don't mind but I've "borrowed" your trick with the writing on one of my samples :-)

    I hope Dave's feeling a bit better and your neck's not too painful,thinking of you both xx

  22. Hi Barb,
    I love these trees which I already own. I really like all of the samples you have shown here and they really do show how versatile the stamps are. Went up to Edinburgh yesterday as a 60 th birthday treat from two friends - my birthday was in May but we had been unable to go until yesterday. We had a wonderful day exploring the Old Town , the weather was gorgeous and showed the city in its true glory. So much history!
    (Fabulous Fiona - found the jewellers you mentioned at Catterick and yes they have some fabulous stuff - did get some earrings!!)
    Love Alison xxx
