Tree bookmark

Well...I've just finished the sample piece for the Nature Challenge at my art site for the month of Feb. It'll be posted on Monday. This time it's going to be a bookmark done in a tree theme.
The sample I've done here was first done on bristol with a drawing in ink and the neg space done with watercolor pencil and colored pencil. On top of that it had been layered with clear acatate treated with alcohol inks. I kept the tree white when I drew it so that the colors of the inks would be the tree's main color. I've backed it with a nice decorative paper and gave it a bit of a yarn topper. I like the final effect quite a bit. Hope the players will as well!
