Doesn't this look like a beautiful place to sit and relax! This card was created using Theresa Momber's "Sending Sunshine" stamp set, available from Gina K Designs. I decided to create a scene using four stamps in this set. First the tree was stamped on white card stock then the sky was sponged on. The tree was colored with Copic markers. I wanted to make the tree dimensional so l used purple Flower Soft on the flowers. I love how this looks.
Next I cut a piece of Basic Grey design paper layered onto white card stock and cut the opening using an oval Nestability. This was attached over the tree using dimensionals to give the card depth. The bench, bird bath and butterflies were stamped and cut out then added with dimensionals. The water in the bird bath has diamond glaze added to it.
The bench and bird bath looked like they were just "floating" on the front of the card so I used scissors to create layered grass. This seemed to ground these items.
This is a beautiful set by Theresa. There are eleven images and five greetings so there are lots of possibilities for creating pretty scenes or to just use the stamps individually.
