No Bananas

Hello.  Welcome.  Here I am with my card for the June Card Chain Challenge reveal.  It was a couple of days late arriving, but Karen says she has received it so now, I can share with you!

I kept it simple whilst using the sketch, the colours, and the themes of trees and friendship.  I stamped the tree from Rubber Dance's Four Seasons set, masking as I went, and coloured with Ink Joy pens.  These are quite hard so I went gently and ended up with sketchy colouring, which I really liked, so I left it like that.  The trunk were coloured with a Stormy Sky Distress marker.  I stamped the Unity Sentiment and then added some curved lines with the distress marker.

Go HERE to see the complete (once I add this card LOL) and amazing Card Chain Challenge reveal for June.
If you would like to join the fun the July sign up is open until the 6th July.  If you have been thinking about joining the fun then now is a good time cos we have a sponsor this month!!
