Ugly Tree

Sometimes an image is better in your head than on paper. I tried to fix it, but the more I messed with it, the worse I made it. Thoughts?

   Sponge a Tree


I accepted a challenge to sponge a tree, using a regular kitchen sponge.

First, I chose some greens for the canopy of the tree: Just Jade, Garden Green, Old Olive, and Mossy Meadow.

I then wet the sponge and applied the various greens, trying to shape a tree canopy. I used different parts of the sponge for the different colors and rinsed it between colors if necessary. As you can see, I was making a mess and the shape in my head was not being transformed onto my watercolor panel. 

Next, I grabbed an Early Espresso watercolor pencil and attempted to draw a tree trunk and some branches. I definitely need to stick with stamping rather than drawing.

I then stamped a sentiment on the top right corner and left the panel to completely dry.

Lastly, I adhered the panel onto a Garden Green card front and added a Basic White panel to the inside of the card.
