Summer in the Park

Summer in the Park, is what I have titled this scenic view entered in the weekly challenge at the Classy Cards 'N Such Challenge #33- Scenic View. I have used another of the "Try" Folds series from Art Impressions Stamps as the base stamp for this card.  "Garden" set contains the park bench and trees image, along with the light post with hanging basket, planter and single bunny stamp.  Although, Beverly, at the Classy Cards 'N Such Online Store does not carry this one set, she does carry others to choose from, and would probably order this one for you if you asked nicely.

I started this card on a white X-press Blending card, suitable for Copic coloring, by stamping the garden bench stamp with trees and flower pot at the top center of the card in tuxedo black Memento ink. Then as per the instructions enclosed with the stamps, stamped the light post cluster at the left edge of the card near the bottom.  To fill in between the two images, I freehand drew more rocks for the path, along with stamping the other bunnies and ducks on a pond, along with more grass, leaves, and lastly added a cattails stamp at the bottom to finish the design. I then attached it to an A2 card base, and applied a little glitz from my Wink of Stella Glitter pens on several of the images.

The stamps I used for this scene are:
Art Impressions:  Garden "Try" Fold set, park bench, trees, flower pot, light post, single bunny with 2 flower pots.
Art Impressions: "Try" Folds Add-Ons- "Furries-2 bunnies, "Feathers"- ducks on pond.
Hero Arts: Delicate Leaves stamp
Stampscapes: small Cattails stamp

Memorial Day weekend is just about upon us, so along with your long weekend, remember the Veterans and Military personnel that gave their lives and work daily to preserve our safety and freedom.  Thank a soldier, and have a wonderful and safe holiday weekend!
