The Paper Players #252 ~ A Little Message!

Are you enjoying your weekend? We had a family get together at my parent's house to celebrate the 4th yesterday. Always so much fun when my big brother comes to town! We have a new challenge up at the Paper Players today. This is theme week and Ann has picked {The Great Outdoors}!!



I brought out my inner child with this little scene ~hee!! First up was the stenciled sun followed by some light ink blending for the sky and grass. The tree (Stamps by Judith) came next followed by the adorable tire swing (Impression Obsession). I added hits of green with a Copic marker for the leaves then stamped the little dots (Stamps by Judith). Finally I tucked in my sentiment (DeNami Design) before adding this to the light aqua card base.

 

I'm entering this at Virginia's View Challenge #16 since it's all stamped. Hope the stenciled sun is okay!!

And there you have it!! Hope you have time to play along this week. This is a great theme with so many options. Have a splendid day ~Lisa

It's not easy to create a scene card (for me anyways). You stamping/inking and use of stencil are spot on, Lisa! So glad that you join the fun over Virginia’s View “100% Stamped” Challenge!
