Hi all! Today marks the 6th week over at Just Us Girls and today Maria is hosting a fab sketch challenge!!
This is my take on the sketch:
I love these colors together and couldn't get them off my mind for some reason! So, I went with the palette. I really love how it turned out! I hope to never need this card, but we all know the circle of life and I expect that it will come in handy when I least expect it.
I colored the tree by using a red marker first to color the leaves, then I used the brown marker to cover the trunk and branches and any stray red marks...huffed and pressed it to the cs. I originally stamped the sentiment using Sahara directly under the tree, but it was a little off, so I restamped on cs and trimmed it with a curved rectangle nestie, pasted it under the tree and cut my circle. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the brown and vanilla flowers on the left and used a red brad to hold them together. I adhered to the cs using a glue dot. I think the rest is pretty self explanatory, so I won't go into too much detail ;]
