This month was a sketch challenge by Jenn Buck. I love sketch challenge and knew exactly what I wanted to do when I first saw the sketch. I've been in love with these adorable trees since I first laid eyes on them. I made the card a 5.5" square card just so I could use this image and still stick to the sketch. Since it a Guest DT spot up for grabs I didn't want to venture too far from the original idea. The trees were all colored first with Prismacolor Markers and then some were paper pieced.
The edges were all distressed and I even busted out the sewing machine....well I guess that's pretty easy to do now since it sits on the table next to my main table. But I did have to move over a bunch of new Unity stamps so I could get to it.
I hope you like it, as I had fun creating it. And I really hope the judges like it enough for it to win me the Guest DT spot.
