Here's my creation...
I'm so pleased with this card! I've never created such a scene before, but these stamps were just beggin' for it. The sweet little Tilda is #217 Picnic Tilda. She is sitting on #618 Picnic Quilt under #415 Oak Tree. You can get these Magnolia's and many more at Magnolia-licious. I don't think the Oak Tree is in stock right now, but if you drop a note to Diana I'm sure she'll get one ordered for you.
To create this scene, I first stamped Tilda and then masked the image to stamp the quilt. Then I positioned the oak tree to look as though Tilda was sitting underneath it somewhat. If you're familiar with the oak tree stamp, it's fairly large. I stamped the entire image but only used the right two-thirds of it on my card. Next I freehanded some clouds on some scrap paper and cut them out to make templates. I placed the templates randomly and rubbed with Stampin Up soft sky ink with a polyester pad to make the clouds. They're darker and bluer in person. Next, I added the green grass with watercolor and distress inks in various shades of green. Once I was happy with the background, I moved onto the images, which are colored with Copic markers and then shadowed with Ranger walnut stain and pumice stone.
The dp's are from the BG Lemonade collection and they are the most yummy, most summery papers ever!!! They actually remind me of the lemonade stands we had as kids. CS is from both SU and ANW Crestwood. I used a MS border and corner punch for the trim and Marvy punches for the butterflies and flowers. The flower centers and the sentiment background got some colored gems by Marcella. I added crystal Stickles all over Tilda's wings, the butterflies, the flowers and the trim around the sentiment background. I brushed a little Ranger walnut stain on the distressed edges of the cs. And finally, I stitched the dp's to the cs, but it doesn't show too well in the photos.
This sweet and simple sentiment is by Stampin' Up.
Here you can see the detail in the scene. This photo also shows a truer color of the sky. I wish you could see it in person because the depth is much more obvious.
Well, that's it for today! I truly enjoyed making and showing this project. Thank you soooooo much for joining me today. I hope you can find some time to color.
