This is my card for this month's sketch challenge over at Rubber Stamp Chat. The challenge is being hosted this month by Starving Artistamps, so I'm using an image from their Into the Woods stamp set, and my inside sentiment is from the matching sentiments set.
This fun tree image has all kinds of little circles in it's branches, and they make the perfect place to put little buttons, brads, whatever. I chose to give my tree a Fall feel, by using various sizes & colors of brads to fill in the circles. I cut out my image using the out of the box technique. I colored in my grass with Copic markers - 2 shades of green, a little brown, and the colorless blender. I colored my sky with a blue watercolor crayon from Stampin' Up! and a water brush. The patterned paper and ribbon are from Basic Grey's Mellow line, and all cardstock, stamping ink, and large gllitter brads are from Close To My Heart.
I'd love to see you participate in this month's sketch challenge, so head on over to Rubber Stamp Chat to play!
