I liked the layout of Kim's Freshly Made Sketches #469 design and all the great samples by the FMS Design Team this week, so decided to give it a go.
|Okay, error corrected and everything is masked properly in this photo. I started blending at the top of the panel and the new blending brush was easy to move around and gave me the exact colouring I was looking for. I think I am in love!|
|To create the grass look at the base of the tree I used a stamp from the By The Dock stamp set. I applied the stamp in various directions to create the uneven ground effect and coloured it with light and dark Old Olive blends.|
|By The Dock Stamp has a number of great stamps but the one I've used the most is the little patch of grass. So versatile.|
I stamped the sentiment "hope your day stacks up to be one good thing on top of another" in Momento Tuxedo Black ink and added the rabbit and balloon to the right side. The "Happy Birthday" sentiment is from the Here's A Card stamp set and was stamped in Old Olive ink.
Well that's it for my post today. I'm really enjoying the slimline card and glad that I switched gears and made this card. It gave me an opportunity to try new things like the blending brushes and the Woodland Wonder set. What fun!
