Prairie Paper and Ink Sketch

Here is my card for the Prairie Paper and Ink sketch challenge this week. I knew I wanted to use this tree from Lovely as a Tree. I decided to ink it up with my SU markers in Old Olive and Chocolate Chip. I stamped it on watercolour paper and used my aquapainter to move some colour around. I reinked it and stamped over the image again to give the tree a little more depth. I dragged the chocolate chip colour on the base of the tree to create some “ground”. I originlly used some chipboard in the top let for my embellishment, but I didn’t think it fit at all. I had some vellum leaves and thought that would work better, although I’m still a little unsure of them, but I couldn’t take them off once they were stuck down. I like the sketch a lot. I think my Vanilla background is missing something – I could have used the Sanded BG or something else, I guess. Anyway, thanks for having a look.
