I actually made this card a couple of days ago ... just haven't had time to take a picture and write the post until now. This is for three challenges:
Color Throwdown #203 (only orange, garden green, daffodil delight, marina mist and crumb cake)
... and CAS-ual Fridays (CFC64) - something you'd see in the sky
... and Dare to Get Dirty challenge by Kittie
I had fun making this scene and I immediately thought of the song "I can see clearly now ... have a bright, bright, bright ... sunshiny day". I would love to be sitting on a bench like this, enjoying the sunshine ... hope you like it too!
Stamps: Park Bench (C.C. Designs)
Paper: White, Crumb Cake, Garden Green, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango (SU!)
Ink: Early Espresso, Tangerine Tango, Marina Mist, Soft Suede (SU!)
Accessories & Tools: Big Shot, Leafy branch and Grass Border dies (C.C. Designs); Puffy Clouds dies (Memory Box) Stamps); Large Sun and Mini Sun punches (Punch Bunch), sponges, mat pack, stylus, glue, and dimensionals
I stamped the bench in Early Espresso ink onto Crumb Cake cardstock three times. One was cut out for the vertical posts and legs of the bench; one was cut for the horizontal slats and bench seat; and the third was cut for the seat only. I sponged the edges of all pieces with Soft Suede ink and then glued the pieces together, adding the second layer of bench seat with dimensionals to give lots of depth.
I die-cut the grass, leafy branch, clouds and punched the large sun and mini suns (orange flowers). I sponged the clouds with Marina Mist ink and the large sun with Tangerine Tango ink. I shaped the mini suns with my mat pack and stylus to make flowers.
I assembled all the pieces and glued them down, adding dimensionals to the bench, sun and small cloud.
Fun card to make!
