It’s a classic sketch.  And surprise surprise,  I’ve fed the addiction and used some designer papers!

Cards are quick and easy.. no coloring just stamping.

The main tree image on the second card was also lightly stamped several times as a background on the designer paper.

After coloring the rubber stamp directly with a marker, it was spritzed with water right before stamping.  I love this technique which gives a wonderful watercolor look to the image.

Each month the winner for my sketch challenge is drawn by putting the names of all those participating into a hat.  The winner of my October Sketch Challenge is conniecrafter.  Congrats, Connie!!  Hope you have lots of fun with this beautiful Tim Holtz stamp set.

My next sketch challenge will be posted on November 15th.
Happy Crafting!
