Inkspiration Sketch Challenge #7

Makeesha is back with her weekly challenges - oh what fun. And she's started off with a sketch challenge - my favourite. So here is the sketch we had to work with.
And this is my creation. I've used Trendy Trees, one of the stamp sets in our Convention bag, and Candy Lane Designer Paper.
So I've gone with the Autumn look using reds and browns and some hints of pink. Though, I've never really seen pink leaves!! For the trees, I've inked into Pink Pirouette and rolled the edges of the stamp into Riding Hood Red. The middle tree has been stamped onto some Vanilla, then I've cut out and mounted with dimensionals. I've also used some Hodgepodge hardware in Silver, some striped ribbon and brads. I have also used the Stamp-a-ma-jig quite a bit, as it helps to line the tree branches with the trunks and also for the sentiment. This is one handy tool I couldn't do without!



Product used:
Stamp set: Trendy Trees
Ink: Close to Cocoa, Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red
Cardstock: Candy Lane DP, Close to Cocoa, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Hodgepodge hardware, sponges, dimensionals, ribbon, brads, Stamp-a-ma-jig,
