Animal Outing Thank You - Hand Stamped Sentiments #289

What a beautiful day here in the Kawarthas - with  a lot of sunshine, no humidity and just a hint of a breeze to make it comfortable to work outdoors.

My gardens are slowly taking shape.  The growth of the plants have been absolutely phenomenal, some plants doubling and tripling in size in the last week.  It's a wonder to behold!

For the sketch challenge with Hand Stamped Sentiments I brought in some garden elements while using the Animal Outing stamp set.




I started with an Old Olive card stock base, layering it with a Whisper White layer embossed with  the Woodlands Embossing folder.  I sponged the edges and the top lightly with Basic Gray ink to bring out the pattern in the embossing .

The cute little rhinoceros with a colorful bird on his nose was stamped on a 2 1/2 by 3" piece of Whisper White card stock, matting it with a 2 3/4 by 3 1/4" piece of Old Olive card stock.  I stamped some extra leaves on the upper right, and some texture dots through out the rest of the piece.



The image was colored with Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen.  Come Clear Wink of Stella was added to the animal alone.



This focal image was added (using dimensionals) to a 2 by 5" banner of Lots of Lovely DSP matted with Old Olive card stock (which was adhered to the embossed front layer.)  The bottom end was notched using the Triple Layer Punch.



The Classic Label Punch was used to punch out a sentiment from "Rooted in Nature".  This was added to the lower image piece using the small dimensionals.


Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Animal Outing, Rooted in Nature, Timeless Texture
Inks:  Black Memento, Watercolor Pencils, Balmy Blue, Basic Gray
Papers:  Old Olive, Whisper White, Lots of Lovely DSP
Accessories:  Classic Label Punch, Woodland Embossing Folder, Dimensionals, Blender Pen. Triple Layer Punch, Clear Wink of Stella
