A Beautiful Summers Day!!



Well, the weather here has been absolutely gorgeous here over the last couple of days and today should be no different! What's even better is that I have today off from work.........yaaaaaay! I'm going to play with my new Magnolia DT package that just arrived and also the new things that I picked up yesterday.

Today's card features stamps from the new Shabby Chic line by Magnolia. I got all of the stamps on this card from The Town Scrapper. I started out by stamping the summer background stamp, Tilda and the mushrooms all seperately on Wausau bright white cardstock using Archival Brilliance Graphite Black ink. The card base is a 6x6 square in Real Red textured cardstock and I pulled out my pack of Basic Grey Gypsy paper for the dp. I coloured everything in using my Copic markers and layered the background on Only Orange cardstock. I pierced all the way around the frame using my Mat Pack by Stampin' Up (love that thing) and added a few Prima flowers with brads and also some striped grosgrain ribbon in red. I outlined all the fluffy clouds and sun with Stardust Stickles and also added some to the little spots on the mushrooms. I pop dotted the 'shrooms and also Tilda to make her look like she was sittin' on the ribbon. Lastly I added some highlights with white acrylic paint!!




Well, I hope you have a stampin' good day today and enjoy whatever you may do! Be sure to check back in here tomorrow and I will post my creation for the Friday Sketch Challenge and you can play too!!! It's a good one!! Oh and have you done MY challenge over there for last week??? There have been over 90 stampers who have made a card using my sketch!! Have you?? Toodles!!
