AHSC - Sketch 93 - Keep your chin up!

Hello again!

Today I have a sneak peak of one of my upcoming workshops. My group asked for some sympathy cards so I made this one and while not quite a sympathy card it is is one of those types of cards you do not normally have on hand when someone needs a pick me up. 

I used the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge for this one and the only altering of it that I really did was to flip it on its side. 

It is kind of hard to tell but if you look closely I used a water blending pen to add a touch of Glacier to the tree, there is a touch of pixie in there too but it is so small it is hard to even see in person. 

I am LOVING this extra wide twine in the Flaxen, we also have it in Pixie, I am not a huge ribbon fan, I know what is my problem, just never got into it but I digress! Anyways as I was saying I love it because it is heartier than the normal twine, in great colours but not as bulky or frilly as ribbon can be.
