Bloom Where You are Planted

Howdy!

Today's card is being entered into the following challenges:
#SSSIGCHALLENGE- Spring Has Sprung
Art Impressions Challenge #279 Bloom Where You're Planted
#TGIFC257 Technique Challenge
STAMPlorations March Stencil Challenge




Have you been playing along with The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge? I have and it's been great motivation. This is my 30th day of participating in the challenge.

For today's card, I started out by stamping the stones onto both the cardstock and a Post-It. The Post-It was then turned into a mask, after I fussy cut the stones out. I did the same thing for the kangaroos. I then stamped onto the cardstock. using the masks to cover the areas I was stamping on. That way some items were able to be stamped under or beside the kangaroos. When the stamping of the piece was done. I moved onto coloring in the kangaroos and stones. For that I used colored pencils and baby oil to blend the colors out. When all the coloring was complete, I glued that cardstock on the card base. I then searched for my sentiment, as I didn't know where it was stored. Gives me more motivation to work on my stamp book. I will share that with y'all once it's complete.

For the sentiment, I stamped that onto vellum. And then heat embossed. When that was done, I ran the vellum through my Xyron. The adhesive in the Xyron is good for using with vellum as you can't see it.
