Snow House -Silhouette Forum Design Challenge

Wow, something other than "The Project", lol.  One of the things I do to decompress from a big project is to walk away and do a project that is just for me, the pure pleasure of doing it, whether it is trying a different medium or technique, it does not matter if it works or ends up in the garbage can.  One of the things that drew me to the Silhouette were the sketch features, so little by little I play with them, get familiar with the icons, etc.  I needed a break yesterday so I sat down and started playing with the "scribble" tool.  I ended up with this little sketch and decided to put the pen to it and liked how it penned out, so I took it to my table and played a little with the Copics, then added some dimensional snow and flicked some gesso at it.  I still have a long way to go but this was fun, got the kinks out of my neck and I realized as I was looking at it, I could enter this in the Silhouette Forum Design Challenge, which has nothing to do with the sketch tools but the large and small tree which I used the scale tool to make smaller.
So I hope you are having a great day and enjoing the end of your weekend.  Hugs

Sometimes when you take on a huge project like you have you need to take a break so it doesn't feel like a chore. Glad to hear you took time for something fun! What a unique card, looks like something you would find in specialty shop.
