Birch Trees


I had some of these done but haven't had a chance to post them lately. When we were on vacation we went to a museum and they had a sculpture that was the inspiration for the tree shapes. I love Autumn because of the beautiful colors and the harvest that it brings so it was a delight to use the sketches from our trip to create these cards.

 The card on the left is a one layer card of birch trees with the color behind representing the fall colors. This was Scored, Sketched, Stenciled, Sponged and Stampscape's Sentiment.
The Card on the right is a sketched and water colored birch scene. When dried it was stamped with pines and geese from Stampscapes. The trees were inspired by a sculpture at the museum. That is why they are so childlike in manner. The color behind can be interrupted as the fall colors in the forest or the sky~ENJOY!
