As I was talking about Maya in my last post I thought this card would be a good one to start with.
It's just a bit of fun but that's what I love about card making. You can do exactly what you want and really personalise them. I can just picture Hubby standing there yelling at her to come back and her being much more interested in something she's just found.
As always with my scenes I planned it out first on copy paper. I drew in the hills with the end of my A4 Clarity Blending Mat (such a useful piece of kit).
I stamped the dog, man and trees into place first, then masked off the dog and started to add colour. This was done with a brush and make-up sponges. I used the edge of the blending mat to tear the hill mask out of some copy paper then sponged in colour to define them.
I used the other part of the torn paper to mask off the hills so that I could stamp the bushes. I didn't worry about masking them off as they were going to be green anyway.
The colouring was all done with Spectrum Noir pencils. If you saw Maya in the last post you'll know that she's the colour of really rich dark chocolate. Unfortunately she ended up looking more like milk chocolate here as I just couldn't get her dark enough. All chocolate is good though!
To finish it off I added her name by using appropriate letters from the Word Chain stamps. It would have been good in the speech bubble from the Elegant Ladies set but as the trees were one of the stamps it was showcasing I didn't want to cover them up.
Well, I'd better go and do some of these jobs I had planned for today before Hubby gets home. Luckily it's meatballs and pasta for dinner so that won't take long to cook.
