Inspiration comes from two places. Firstly, the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.
Secondly, the theme challenge at Stamp, Ink, Paper, to incorporate natural elements.
The natural elements occur in a number of ways: the subject matter - trees, the use of greens and browns, the linen twine and the embossing folder which is reminiscent of wood grain or bark. The background is very lightly sponged in Crumb Cake to help bring out the texture.
