For today's sketch challenge. So I love what I've been seeing of Trees Three from the winter mini but I already have Sheltering Tree and never use it anymore so I thought I would get it out and play. I got this idea to make a partridge in a pear tree and here's my attempt at that. The idea was good but the execution was not so great!
I used markers to vary the colors of the leaves, sponged, drew and colored the pears and added the little bird at the top of the tree from the Love Ya Bunches set. I cut out the tree and popped up the leaves. The sentiment is from Mike's # stamps and embossed in gold EP. The hard part came when trying to find coordinating image for the panels that wouldn't overwhelm the little tree. I ended up just doing Paisley bg in Versamark on the Bravo Burgundy and then speckled gold ep here and there. I guess I need to get some gold embellishments because I only came up w/ thin gold cording, eyelets brads and the photo holders. Guess what I used! TFL!!
