OLW38 - Spring tree ...

... the challenge set by Jennifer over at Styles Ink for this week's OLW is to use a sketch.  Now, normally I don't have a problem with a sketch, but I think it's that we still had to have just one layer!!  That was a real challenge for me.



Anyway, I spent some time in my craft room yesterday afternoon and came up with my Spring Tree card - actually I'm quite pleased with it.  I did flip the sketch - it worked better for me with the tree on the left!



I used my favourite bare tree stamp from Elusive Images, only this time I was able to add some leaves and flowers!!  To make the sun I made a stencil with my Spellbinders inverted scalloped circles - it gave the sun little points!  Finally, I added a very simple greeting.

Stamps:  Elusive Images - Trees;  Greeting - don't know the company who made this one (any idea?)
Inks:  Memento - Rich Cocoa, Cottage Ivy, Pear Tart, Bamboo Leaves, New Sprout, Lulu Lavender, Lilac Posies;  Distress - Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold
Pens:  Marvy le Plume - Black, Scarlet
Spellbinders:  Lg Classic Inverted Scalloped Circles (S4-194) die #2

That's all for now.  I'll be back later with a few more challenges to show you.
