Lovely As A Tree Meets Robert Frost for Mojo Monday

It seems like weeks since I've done a sketch challenge so I was excited to see what the MojoMonday sketch was today. It was a challenging one with a lot of layers. I chose to use Stampin'Up!s Lovely As a Tree stamp set. I stayed with Earth Element colors combining Close to Cocoa, More Mustard, Ruby Red, & Old Olive. I also mixed my papers between textured and plain card stock and Vellum. I love the look of Vellum! To create the fall tree colors, I inked the tree in Old Olive ink and then "thumped" the image with Ruby Red and More Mustard Stampin' Write markers. By thumping, I mean just that; thump the marker on the rubber image ~ that's it!

I included part of a poem by Robert Frost, Tree At My Window, on the card which I printed out on the computer onto More Mustard card stock.

There are some things I think I would change but, all in all I like the way it turned out.

This week starts the last Deal of the Week. Pirate and Princess party kits are on sale this week! YoHo!! See my Stampin'Up! website for details.
