Snow Shoeing

When it's almost 90 degrees outside, what better way to cool down than with a Christmas scene? I'm talking  about Mark's Finest Papers and the Sketch With A Twist (SWAT) Challenge #111. I was lucky enough to have brought this MFP stamp with me to Yellowstone. It turned out so pretty I'll have to make more like it when I return home to Florida in October! This Challenge is about the sketch and was to include something with trees.

I took a pen and ink and watercolor course recently and one thing the instructor really loves is sketching and painting tree trunks. I have to agree. The trunks have a lovely personality of their own. This stamp shows the trunk of an Aspen tree which has a bark that is so pretty and smooth. Throw in the beautifully formed fir tree and it makes a nice picture. Thanks MFP for the inspiration!
