Tremendous trees

It's sketch challenge time again on CMLI. Set this week by Karen, the theme is trees. I could have gone one of two ways with this, but decided on an oriental theme as I haven't done one like that in a while.

I've used a peel off as a resist and chalked around the edges and in the centre. Her hair is done freehand with a very tiny cotton bud as this was a block in the peel off not an outline.

Edged in stickles with charm and some oriental ribbon.


  1. so soft and delicate. i really love the glass charm too, it finishes the card off a treat! x

  2. just stunning, the charm is fabulous too x

  3. So pretty. A restful and calming card. Very in keeping with the style. Nice to see chalks for a change too Nicola. Must dig mine out. Lx

  4. Hi Alexeya

    What a great finished look. I have never thought of using peel offs like this!! Very inspirational.

    Loving that scrummy backing paper and cute charm too.

    Love Jules xx
