This was an interesting sketch! And it took me longer than I planned on.
All images by FireCracker Designs (except the horse, which I drew). I started my scene by stamping the long top panel w/ the trees. Then I used a torn piece of paper as a mask and sponged in the ground. I used my infamous Mothermark inspired cloud stencil to sponge in the clouds I added orange dots for flowers and a little shading w/ markers.
Then I did the same for the background panel except I started w/ the horse I drew and added in the other elements. The two smaller squares were done the same way. I edged all the panels w/ a burnt sienna marker then attached them to a bashful blue mat which was also edged w/ the b.sienna marker. The long horizontal panel has a wider blue mat and a narrow r. rust mat.
The sentiment was die cut w/ a Quickutz oval and attached to a r. rust Nestie oval. Thanks so much for looking and I'll have close ups on my blog: The Write Stuff
