A New Sketch

September already? WOW time is really flying by! A new month means a new sketch over at the The Sketch File. Kathy has created a fantastic sketch to inspire us all. When I first saw it, I had lots of ideas buzzing around in my head and finally settled on this group of tree houses.  I colored them with markers and adhered them to black cardstock. I tore the top edge of the cardstock to recreate that fabulous wavy look that Kathy created in her sketch. To create the horizontal detail,  I used decorative scissors and cut white cardstock into strips. I also layered washi tape onto white cardstock strips.  It was a fun sketch to work with and I hope you are inspired as well. Please link up your creation with us over at The Sketch File.

Supplies: Cardbase: Recollections, Digital Stamps: The Wax Fruit Company, Washi: Darice, Cardstock: Recollections, Markers: Bic Mark It, Colored Pencils: Crayola, Adhesive: Scotch ATG
