Tag Tuesday - front and back

For this week's challenge at Tag Tuesday, something from the front of your tag needs to run over onto the back. I used a tree stamp from Paperbag Studios. In my first attempt, when I stamped half of the tree, you really couldn't tell it was a tree - kind of looked like some weird scraggly, messy blob - really, it did! So for my second try on the front, I stamped more of the left side of the stamp, and on the back, I tried to do more of the right side of the stamp. I added some punched leaves - a few tenaciously clinging to their branches, but others falling through the air and laying on the ground - kind of how things look now in my yard. I used an embossing folder on the top and bottom and inked it with forest moss Distress Ink.
