Day 24 Glass Powder Sgraffito Challenge

Day 24 of 30 asks that we sketch a tree using just our non-dominant hand and a business card to manipulate the glass powder.  I used my left hand to drizzle powder and then drag a torn business card to carve out the branches and add a little bark texture.  It was so relaxing to just let the business card find the tree in the powder.  Creating from my imagination is much easier than trying to reproduce a close-up of an actual object with a specific shape, definite texture and set light source.
