Clean and Simple SHAC Doodle Birthday Card

The SHAC Doodle stamps by Barbara Gray are so versatile.  I didn't use either of the main images in the Hot Air Balloon set to create this clean and simple panel card, just three of the smaller extras.

Trim a piece of Clarity stencil card to 6.75” x 6.75”. Add a strip of mask 2” up from the bottom.
Add the three individual trees from the Up, Up and Away SHAC doodle set in decreasing size along the masked line using Library Green, Peat Moss and Fern Green archival inks.
Repeat using Leaf Green, Vivid Chartreuse and Prickly Pear Archival ink.
Keep alternating until the line is complete.
Remove the masking and add Happy Birthday from the Entwined Sentiments stamp set in Black Soot archival ink below the trees.
Colour the left hand side of each tree with Derwent Inktense pencils, blended out with a watercolour brush pen.
To finish, add to the front of a 7” x 7” black card blank.
