Sunday Postcard Art - Trees

This weeks theme at Sunday Postcard Art is trees!
My instant reflex was to create something happy and green but the creative process is unpredictable and this is how it turned out:
a depressed woman, behind a castle window.
Maybe she is depressed because it is winter....the tree is completely without leaves. She can't play outside in the haystack with the gardener because it is too cold outside and has to wait for Spring until she can finally meet her forbidden love again. Or maybe...well.. you can make something up yourself

Although the card looks a bit depressing did however start out with the happy tree paper from KI Memories..you can still see some of it shining through the background that was coloured with gesso and Ecoline.
The window is a stamp that I ordered at Stampfrancisco and I just cut out the empty space. This really is the BEST online stamping shop I have ever seen! Whatever you are looking for..they have it!



You might want to see more trees... then check out the Sunday Postcard Art blog or their new Flickr group...to see the complete collection.
Enjoy your sunday and come back later this week to see an update on my Babette Blanket, a scary ATC, and a cool sewing project in progress!

Well, I think she does look happy. Probably because she is in that gorgeous background:)
