Hey Chick

Hi!  I have spent a good few hours today in my craft room and it was fun!  I made a couple of cards for upcoming challenges and also made a couple of cards for some challenges going on right now.  This one is for the current farm inspiration at SugarPea Designs as well as the Stamp theme at Work It Wednesday and Anything Goes at Seize the Birthday.

I started this card by stamping out all the images onto cardstock and coloring them with Copics.  I had no idea how I was going to lay out my card, but I just felt like coloring :)  Once I was finished, I die-cut them all and then worked on a layout.  A few pieces couldn't fit so I've put them away for next time.

On the card base, I cut a sloping mask from copy paper and sponged on Broken China ink for the sky and Cracked Pistachio for the ground.  It's really faint in the photo but you can see it IRL.  All of the images were adhered directly to the card base apart from the girl who is popped up on foam tape.  I then drew in some shadows with a C3 and C1 marker.  Here are a couple of close-ups.

And even though I tried to limit how many different colors I used, here is the photo of the Copics used on this card - too many for the container I usually use for the photos!

Thanks for visiting.

I love this card Karren, such a wonderful scene. I struggle with scenes mostly case I dont buy many scene stamps or dies but I think mostly cause I'm too lazy. Love your colouring, that little girl with the plait is so cute.
