Tire Swing

Hello friends, I hope your having a good weekend. It was glorious weather the last few days so we were busy outside.

It took me two days to finish making this card.  I used the tree from the stamp set, extended the height a bit, and coloured it with Copic markers. and then used distress inks to make the sky and grass. I the used the Grassy Fields die and some card stock to make the top layer of grass. Of course I also stamped the main image and the tire swing stamp, used the matching dies and coloured then with Copic Markers.

Here is a picture of the main image after I coloured her.

And here is the background before I added the top layer of grass.

Once I added the card stock grass, I cut the panel using the largest die in the Blueprints 13. I then took forever to decide if I wanted the girl behind or in front of the grass and in the end decided behind. Once the panel was complete and added lots of foam tape and attached it to the A2 size card panel.

This is the finished card.
