Life is Good for Tuesday Morning Sketches
I knew that I wanted to use the large tree on the panel at the right, and then the rest just kind of came together. The sentiment is actually curved, but I straightened it out for the card - one of the great features of acrylic stamps.
The flower and kite are pieced. For the kite, I inked up the stamp, and then wiped it against the pad to get a streaky look. Then I added a little extra color on the edges and smoothed it out a bit using my blending pen. For the tree top I stamped on Garden Green cardstock using Garden Green ink.
That great orange ribbon matched my Goldrush ink perfectly and is May Arts, which, incidentally, you can purchase from the Ribbon Carousel - this week's sponsor at Tuesday Morning sketches.
Hope you hare having a great Friday! I'm actually off today, and taking a short break from cleaning to post this....back to work!
