Today I have a cute little square card for you inspired by this week's sketch over at Try Stampin' or Not on Tuesday. Usually I'm all about flowers, but the theme is summer fun and this stamp from the set Happy Home just made me think of some summer fun. :)
This is the sketch we're playing with at Try Stampin' or Not on Tuesday. Click HERE to see all of the other great cards made by the design team. And if you get a chance to play along we'd love to see what you create! :)
To make this card I cut a 2-3/4" circle out of watercolor paper, and a 3-3/16" circle using Soft Sky. My card base is watercolor paper also and is 4-1/4" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4". I started by inking my stamp using Basic Black Archival because it won't bleed. Once that was stamped I wet the area under the hill with my aqua painter, then added a bit of Pear Pizzazz. While that was drying I wet the sky area, then filled it in with a bit of Soft Sky. I went back down into the grass and added more Pear Pizzaz to add some shadows and to add a little more color. Pear Pizzazz breaks down into browns and yellows also so it looks like I used more than one color, but I didn't. Then I went back up into the sky and added some more Soft Sky here and there so it had a little detail in it. Under the circles you can see I added a bit of Soft sky at the top and Pear Pizzazz at the bottom to fill in for the stars from the sketch. I punched out the sun in So Saffron using the 3/4" circle punch and layered it over two of the Petite Petal punched flowers to give the sun some rays. I stamped Hello at the bottom and the card is done. :)
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
