I love the splotchy effect it gives!

The mod tree was created from the trunk of Teach & Inspire and three filled in circles from Hello Sunshine.

The crease up top is literally that...a crease I meant to cut off, but after inking up, I felt it lent character to the panel, you know?

  1. Marlena, that is so great how you used the sunshine panels. Love the background. And the crease looks like you planned it.

  2. I love the effect you've achieved here, it looks like a wonderful chalk drawing. I'm with you on the crease, I would have saved it too! Thanks for joining us for this week's Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge!

  3. It was worth the inky fingers! It's beautiful Marlena! Love the water spritzes ,I forgot about that.

  4. Marlena, just love it! The water spots, the interesting design, the colors, it all works so well together!!

  5. Love that tree and the gorgeous colors!
