Measurements: Image panel 2 5/8 x 4 3/8 plus 1/16 border, Designer paper 3 3/8 x 4 7/8 plus 1/16 border, the sentiment is a pre cut piece that came with the designer paper and it is approx 1 7/8 across the hello area x Ύ
-Stamp the elephant and mask off; I used post it notes for the mask and will store it to use again. Stamp on the tall grass. Using a torn piece of paper mask off the sky area and sponge on the ground color. Stamp on the short grass.
-Now switch to the other piece of torn paper and mask off the ground area.
-For the sun I punched 3 sizes of circles (1/2, 1 and 1 Ό) and layered them on top of each other. With the last step of sponging I removed one at a time as I continued to sponge and got three depths of color.
-Now back to the sky sponging, I started sponging at the bottom with the lightest color, medium in the middle and darkest at the top.
-For the streaks in the sky I used a post it notes. The streak lines were cut out of the paper. In all it took about five minutes for this step, just a few streaks will do because you can move in different locations on the panel.
-The elephants and tall grass were colored with Prismacolor pencils, baby oil and paper stumps. Any areas that showed a bit of white after removing the mask were touched up with the pencils.
-My faux brads were cut with the small tags die from Cuttlebug and glued to the card. I like the die because it rounds the edges and you would not know they arent real especially with this extra thick cardstock.
Tools: ½, 1, 1 Ό circle punches, Cuttlebug tag die, sponge, scrap paper, post it notes, paper stumps
