I staged the card with the images I used for the backgrounds. The challenge is to use images not intended for backgrounds to create backgrounds. The sunflower is obvious, the tree is on the brown and the fence on the red. To bad the second two dont show to well in the photo. After all that stamping I recall now why I have so many background images.
The little boy image is colored with watercolor crayons and H2o brush/aqua painter on regular cardstock which is sprayed with Krylon clear coating to make it water color paper.
The sunflowers are stamped on glossy cardstock and colored with re inkers and artist brush and water.
Both ink and tool distressing is done on the brown and red.
Ribbon is tied first and the ends taped to the back side of the brown before I attached that panel to white cardstock. This is done so I can too distress all edges.
Circle sentiment is colored with marker, layered and cut with mini pinking scissors and mounted with foam and layers of cardstock.
The sun was added to hide a flaw in the stamping, that section of the image is now cut out. It is colored with markers.
