Tuesday is MMSC126 Day......Join us!!

This weeks sketch...MMSC126....it's "YOUR PICK" Make it fancy, clean and simple, or somewhere in-between. "YOUR CHOICE"
Sketch created by Jen this week :)
Enter one style or both this week.
Just have fun and come play with us :)
 
I am using Priscilla's Flowering Tree digital stamp this week which of course you can find at Priscilla's store! It was meant for spring but I thought it would make a lovely fall tree. Since I didn't have the correct colors of flower soft to use I made some of my own. CDAC has a tutorial by Shelly Schmidt on how to do this and it worked like a charm!! Thanks Shelly!! What do you think?
I was thrilled with the way the flower soft turned out and how well Priscilla's trees lent themselves to becoming an Autumn beauty! It just shows how versatile her images can be if you will allow your imagination to pull you along. :)  As you can see, I used the image twice, the larger of the two in the foreground and the smaller mirrored and in the background for some depth. I really like the way this turned out. Prisma pencils were used for the trunk, grass and sky. This card is going to my cousin in Texas, I hope she enjoys it!

and one more :)

I wish my trees in the yard looked this beautiful. Well, there was that one day when they did and then the wind kicked up. :( I should just keep coming back here and look at your card for the scenery I wish I had outside.
Wonderful artistic showcase on this card.
