Topiary tree...

Thursday already!  That means it must be time for the Pals Paper Art challenge.  Today is a sketch challenge.  I took a little license with the sketch and am really pleased with how this card turned out.

I have had these PTI topiary trio dies and stamp set for a while now and have only used them once.  But I spotted them when I was reorganizing last weekend and thought I had better figure out a card to make.

I started off with a stencil I made from the PTI ancient Rome die and used some chalk to make a rectangle.  Then I die cut the topiary tree out of SU! garden green, wild wasabi and chocolate chip.

This die is kind of cool, you need to poke the little edges out to get them to stand up for some pretty neat looking texture.  I layered the two greens together and added the chocolate chip for the pot.

The tree takes the place of the oval in the sketch.  I added a sentiment in chocolate chip ink from the PTI topiary trio stamp set.  Overall, this comes together for a clean and simple card.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Be sure to pop by tomorrow!

Supplies:  CS:  SU! chocolate chip, natural white, wild wasabi, and garden green.  Dies and Stamps:  PTI topiary trio.  PTI ancient Rome die.  Other:  SU! chocolate chip ink and chalk.
