Every Day's an Adventure

Today I CASE'd a card on SCS by Bridget Finlay.  She is an incredibly talented crafter and I love her style!  She made this card and I just fell in love with it and decided I wanted to make the same card.  I only made slight modifications.  Hope you like.

"Every Day's an Adventure"

Stamps:  On the grow (SU!)
Paper:  Wild Wasabi, Whisper White, Garden Green, Crumb Cake (SU!)
Ink:  Wild Wasabi, Garden Green, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Soft Suede (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Die-namics tree and leaves (My Favorite Things), Sizzix circle die-cut, Big Shot, post-it notes for masking, clouds die-cut (Memory Box), Nestabilities circles, adhesives, Tombow glue, sponges and dimensionals

I cut out the large circle from a scrap piece of paper and used the reverse (the opening) as my mask ... this is called "reverse masking".  I covered the background with the mask, leaving the circle open.  I did the same by masking off all areas of the circle except for the bottom hill.  I sponged Wild Wasabi ink for the first hill.  Then I repeated this by masking all areas except one and moving my way up from the bottom, sponging as I went along.  For the sky, I used the cloud die-cut as my mask to create the randomly shaped scallops.

I ran a large piece of Whisper White cardstock through my Big Shot with the circle die-cut, this time making sure it was on the right hand side of the page and centered top to bottom ... this will be my card front.  I dry-fit the sponged image underneath until I was happy with the placement and mounted it onto a card base of Wild Wasabi.  I added dimensionals to the card front and placed it on top of my sponged image.

I ran the tree die-cut through my Big Shot with Crumb Cake cardstock.  I sponged the tree with Soft Suede ink, so that the embossing showed.  I ran several trio of leaves through the Big Shot with both Wild Wasabi and Garden Green cardstock.  I used small dots of glue to add the leaves to the tree.

I mounted the tree onto the card front.  I stamped the sentiment in Wild Wasabi ink, and mounted it onto a frame of Wild Wasabi.  I mounted the sentiment to the front of the card.
