Life Is A Picnic - MFTWSC291

Hello friends, I hope you're having a good week.

Today I made a card using the current sketch from MFT Card Challenges and an older stamp set from MFT Stamps called Everyday Is A Picnic.

I decided to do some watercoloring and used the Staedtler - Karat Aquarell Watercolor Crayons and some Strathmore - 300 Series 140 lb cold press Watercolor Paper

I watercolored the girl, sun, picnic basket and the grass. The cloud background is American Crafts - Dear Lizzy design paper cut with a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die. I also cut a frame for the sky out of card stock using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.

Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: MFT Stamps - Birdie Brown-Everyday Is A Picnic
Dies: MFT Stamps -Birdie Brown-Everyday Is A Picnic and Grassy Fields,  Simon Says Stamp - Stitched Rectangles
Ink: Ranger Archival Ink - Jet Black,  Versafine - Onyx Black
