Merry Monday 59 - Tree Tops

 Hello there,
well finally I've made it back to the Merry Monday challenge. The last month has been kind of busy! School holidays to manage and a fun family trip away! Then it was back to work which has been crazy busy and is going to stay that way - for a bit anyway. Anyway in the gaps this week I squeezed in the sketch that Lesley came up with for this week.

My starting point was to make a red/green Christmas card, I've noticed that I have a tendency to lean towards blue! So green and Christmas = christmas tree and the end result is what you see. The Christmas tree has a bit of a distressed/vintage feel so I paired it up with some text DSP, and added some extra layers of ink by stamping and sponging over the top of it. That will be it for me tonight. It's getting late - and if I leave this till the morning I'll miss the challenge. So its good night from me :)

Hope to see you next week, thanks for visiting.
