Are you feeling sketchy? Create with Connie and Mary has a sketch challenge this week and we sure hope you will play along with us. It's easy. It's fun!
Here is the sketch.
This is my interpretation of the sketch: a combination of Sheltering Tree stamp set and the new Sprinkles of Life stamp set.
Once I stamped the bare tree, grass and flowers, I added an overlay of vellum on which I had stamped the tree's foliage.
Because vellum is not very porous, it takes longer for the ink to dry. There are a few ways to help the process: heat it with a heat tool or allow it to air dry or blot it dry.
Another thing to keep in mind with vellum is adhesive may show through. To get around this, I added adhesive in strategic places such as under the little bird and under the punched sentiment.
Here is a close up so you can see the vellum.
You may be wondering why I went with a green background and not blue, especially with clouds. It just looked more cohesive :)
