I love the naturalistic effect of the background trees! How did you add the color to the trunks?

I stamped the trees in Old Olive then used a blender pen to remove the ink from the centers where the trunk would be. Then I used a chocolate chip marker to color in the trunks. Thanks for the nice comment

Ooh, I've never heard of that technique before. Thank you so much for explaining it! I'm definitely going to try it out.
