First of all, I flipped the sketch...
The wrought iron fence is the vertical element on the sketch, the center tree the circle element and then everything else is just what you do when you fill in the sketch. The elements aren't quite layered as they appear in the sketch, but I do love the way this turned out!
The base of the card is a digital image (trees/sentiment) from Sweet n Sassy Stamps. The wrought iron and birds are die cuts from a retired die set called Garden Romance by Heartfelt Creations. I used ONE marker on this project. I colored the trees and birds using Distress inks and ink blenders. I colored the tree trunks with a Copic marker... oh, I lied. I used two markers, I also used one to color beaks and then a Copic liner to make eyes on the birds. I'm not really good at ink blending, but I think my lack of skill was perfect for these trees - they have texture and a little depth.
