It never ceases to amaze me as to where ideas can come from. The idea behind this card actually came from the “Surf and Turf” set by Paper Smooches. I had the set out to make a little seascape. In fact, I had actually roughed out a little scene but it didn’t really look right. In a little fit of pique, I stamped the log image in a row and, to quote Bev, *PING* an idea was born – the ADORABLE little munchkins from the Mama Elephant set “In My Heart” would look so cute climbing on the logs in the playground…so I set about trying to make that idea happen. This meant another quick visit to the Mama Elephant site to get the “Tree Friends” set so I could have a couple of lovely trees to frame the logs. (Yes, I *had* to get a new stamp set…the sacrifices one must make for their art! haha) This gorgeous set comes with a tree stump so my idea changed gears a little but I am actually really thrilled with how this card turned out. I didn’t do anything fussy at all – straight colouring and bam, done!
Here’s the card…
It was suggested to me that I only needed one tree so I might give it another go and see how it looks with just the one. I’m also now crushing on the Ripe Persimmon Distress Marker. Such a gorgeous shade. lol
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are all having a super creative day!
