Here is a card that I've had in my head ever since purchasing a few of these lovely Sugar Nellie images.
When I saw that this little cutie was "looking away" my mind thought ... "what do you think she's looking at???" Well, that's where my Stampscapes come into play. I'll be playing with other images I have to see if I can't perfect this a little more.
What I've done is first stamp the Sugar Nellie (reflective) image onto white cs then masked her using Eclipse masking medium. Then I stamped the church, some additional pines on the left, and the path. I also masked the church so I could stamp the sky (Ala Art stamp) and the birds. The ground cover was colored with chalk & makeup applicator. The trees and Sugar Nellie were colored with SU & Prima pencils. I've used words from a Crafty Secrets (mini words) set and the Believe is from Technique Tuesday for the outside border. Of course I had to add a touch of softness with this beautiful white organdy ribbon from JoAnn's.
This was fun but I will have to work on my masking technique. I don't always get a good background image ... think I need more "cushioning" before stamping over the masked area so I don't get those "hallos". Your thoughts or suggestions???
Thanks so much for stopping by and I always enjoy hearing your comments!!!
