It's a sketch challenge this week at Heart 2 Heart. I used the sketch as my starting point, but I did modify it a bit.
I came up with the idea of using the Trees & Things Stamp Set to make a little scene in one of the panels. The set comes with a ton of cute tree accessories, and I couldn't decide which season to do. The sketch features 4 panels, and seemed like a perfect fit (excuse?) to do all 4 seasons.
The basic colors are Clover Meadow, Chocolate, Tulip, and Sunflower. I attached the Spring and Summer panels with foam tape. This helped since they didn't lay exactly flat because of the brads I used as blossoms and apples.
In the Winter scene I used some Glitz Glitter Glue to simulate snow on the branches.
The set comes with two leaf arrangements - one full of leaves and one a little more sparse. There's also an individual leaf stamp that helped me add a few leaves to Spring and Fall to get just the look I wanted.
I really adore this stamp set. It's one of the more 'fun' sets to create with. On a side note, this is my last week as Guest DT. It was a lot of fun and a real honor. Thanks Mary & the Design Team for sharing such great ideas week after week. And a special thanks to all those of you who take the time to leave comments when you visit. I know it's easier to just click right along to your next stop, but the time you take to say a few words is truly appreciated.
