I was short a card to send to DD while she was away at girl scout camp so I had to make this one quickly. I used a sketch #26 from the Club Anya blog HERE. Remember I said I needed this quick....so I made the entire background by dragging inkpads across the paper. No sponges or stamps.
I started by dragging Kiwi across the grassy area side to side. Then I inked in some grass by pulling the Olive pad upwards. The sky was a blue pad drug side to side and I didn't worry if I covered completely as white spots were clouds, right? I used a Cocoa cube to rough in some tree trunks by just dragging the side of it down. Then I used the corners of the greens to make the pine tree shapes. As is my favorite style, I cut the shapes of the sketch into my solid piece after I was all done inking and glued the little scout into place. I have some improvements to make on this dragging technique but it was quick and fun.
