SUMMER DREAMS

Hey there, I've been sick all week, and yesterday was the first day I felt well enough to color.  Woohoo!  I decided to combine My Favorite Things Sketch #268 and Color Challenge #39.  Although this stamp set is retired, it's the first time I've inked it up.  I know...*gasp*!


A MISTI was used to stamp the tree twice with Tuxedo Black onto Neenah Solar White; once on the background panel and the other on a piece that was die cut with MFT's Grassy Hills.  The tree on the background panel wasn't quite tall enough, so Copic Multiliners were used to extend it to the edge of the card.  I'm really happy with how the tree turned out!  The woodgrain texture gives the card character, and it was fun to create!  The Grassy Hills panel was die cut then colored with Copics.  The tree was fussy cut out and the grass sections were glued directly to the background panel.  Warm Gray markers were used to shadow the MFT Woodgrain Fence while the Grassy Edges die completes the background.  The girl was stamped, colored, fussy cut then glued and popped up onto the background.  Pretty easy CAS card!
