Here's my card for today!

The scene was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with Copic markers. When I was done coloring the main image, I die cut it using a Nestabilities Labels 11 Grand die, then lightly outlined inside of the die using a C00 marker. I added some grass below the little boy and the leaf pile, then made a cloudy sky using the negative left from the two smaller Memory Box Cloud dies as well as cloud punch. I lightly traced them, then added some puffiness to the clouds with C0 and C00 markers. When that was done, I just added a nice blue sky using a custom blended "less than B21" marker. Clear Gel Glaze pen was added to the dog's nose, his eyes, the little boy's eyes, the rake handle, and the leaves.

I seem to be on a use older patterned paper kick lately. The striped paper (punched with a Fiskar's Border Punch) is from Basic Grey's Mellow collection and the kid scene and the trees are from the Mellow 6x6 pad. They were matted with paper from Basic Grey's Fusion collection, which was edged with Fired Brick Distress Ink.The base layer is from Graphic 45's French Country 8x8 pad.

I braided yellow, blue, and green hemp twine from American Crafts and used it to separate some layers and add some visual interest.
