Winter Tree - Sketch Saturday #37

Jeanette has created a lovely sketch for that I just had to use with my Penny Black tree stamp. I've not put a sentiment on it as I think it could be a winter birthday card - unless it becomes the first of my Christmas 09 cards that is :).
I embossed the tree onto white card using clear ink and white powder. I then took chalk inks and a sponge and rubbed them into the card to create a grey/pink/blue cold sky background. The ink doesn't stick to the white areas, if it does at all just wipe it gently with a baby wipe.
Cut it into a circle with Nestabilities die and gave it some colour with Stickles. The two patterned papers I used are both from Graphicus Guild's paper packs.


  1. What a lovely card Anne. The colours are really soft and beautiful.

  2. Anne, what a fantastic job you did with the sketch and that stamp. I love that stamp and now that I have seen how really beautiful it can be, you are forcing me to go and purchase it! Well, at least my scrappin room is cleaned up, well, cleaned up for me!! Have a great week, Leslie

  3. What a lovely card! The stamp is very pretty.

    Hugs, Vanja
