monotangle trees

purk, echoism, cayke

arukas, meer variation, flux, shattuck, opus

These little pieces are quick and easy to do for Christmas cards. I cut a piece of black cardstock to 5 x 7. I lightly sketched a few triangles and then filled each one with a white gel pen and monotangle. The snow drifts were then added with a white charcoal pencil that I smudged and softened.  

Art supply stores sell watercolor cards that measure 5 x 7 when folded so these can be attached as is or trimmed slightly so that you will have a white border around your piece.

  17. I absolutely LOVE your trees!!! Your cards are lovely!!! Echoism and Purk are my favorites! I have a white charcoal pencil on my Christmas list (I know they don't cost much but I like to leave things I really want, and don't absolutely have to have right now) for others to get me for gifts or in my stocking. :)
