Happy Monday!! The Design team has had a great break but it is now time to get back to some sketchy fun. We have a new sketch today at From the Heart Stamps and it is a fun, simple one. Hahaha – the tWist today is to use watercolor and I accidentally missed it. I have done mostly watercolor lately and today when the tWist calls for it, I didn’t do it.Sketch114I have gotten into Christmas this July and decided to do another card with that theme – I went with a simple white background, but as I am want to do, I embossed it with a Days of Christmas embossing folder for some texture. I thought that would be a good fit since the pear tree is the first day of Christmas…

I used Washi tape for my sketch elements. My image is called: Pear and Whimsical Christmas Trees.
