I've also sewn the buttons on my sewing machine cover so I should get that finished tomorrow. I just hope I don't mess it up as it's looking really good so far.
Anyway, back to card making....
Today's card features the Shepherd's Purse stamp designed by my teamie, Amanda Branston. It's a beautiful stamp and I thought it would make a lovely foreground with a very simple scene behind it. This involved quite a bit of masking!
First I had to mask off some of the flowers and leaves so that they appeared in front when I stamped the others...
...then I masked off the flowers and the sun so that I could create the scene around them. I didn't worry about the leaves as it didn't matter if they got green on them from the grass - I would be colouring them green later anyway.
I stamped the couple, who I like to think are Mandy and Mark, in place, so I knew where to put the hills......
...then added them and the sky.
It probably would have been quicker and easier to use my Pebeo Drawing Gum but I didn't want to risk it all going horribly wrong. One day I will get around to experimenting with it.......until then it's fiddly Post-its.
To finish it off the flowers are coloured in with Spectrum Noir pencils and I cropped it down a bit before I mounted it. I chose some bright yellow card for the mat to add to the sunny feel of it. I think Mandy and Mark are having a lovely time on that bench.
Before I go, do you like my new Happy Jackson glasses case?
I couldn't resist it, although in my case it should say "Just add glasses and coffee!"
See you soon.
