Again, the colors for today are Peach Parfait, Lucky Limeade and Pool Party ... or you can substitute the closest colors you have - which I did with Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Baja Breeze (all SU! ink colors).
I'm also entering this for last week's CAS-ual Friday's CFC46 challenge - Name that tune (be inspired by a song title or lyrics). Hope you like.
"Oh Happy Day"
Stamps: Kittie Kits - Cause a Scene - Master #1 (Rubbernecker); Thanks a bunch - sentiment (Stampendous)
Paper: Whisper White (SU!)
Ink: Old Olive, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake (SU!)
Accessories & Tools: post-it note for masking, sponges, and adhesives
I masked the bottom 1 1/2" and masked the top 1 1/4" of my Whisper White card front, using post-it notes. I stamped the tree trunk first in Soft Suede ink and then cut out a mask for the tree before sponging Old Olive at the bottom and Baja Breeze at the top.
I removed the mask on the tree trunk and used my Crumb Cake Stampin' Write marker to fill in the trunk. I also added a few little "branches" with the Soft Suede marker in the tree top area.
Using the leaf sprig stamp, I inked it with Old Olive and stamped several times to fill in the tree top area ... using first, second and third generation stamping.
I inked the grass stamp with Old Olive and stamped around the base of the tree. I stamped the flower patch with Old Olive and added Pumpkin Pie for the blossoms. I stamped more of the Old Olive grass around the base of the flower patch.
I removed the masks and then added a few more leaf sprigs at the top of the tree so that they went beyond the top of the masked area.
I stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede ink and then mounted the card front onto a card base of Old Olive cardstock (for thickness and stability).
