Measurements: largest hunter green panel - 3 13/16, weave designer paper (with brads) - 2 Ό x 4 7/8, sanded designer paper 1 Ό x 4 7/8, image panel 2 1/8 x 3 11 /16 with borders of 1/16 and 1/18
-Tear a large sticky note in two pieces one piece much smaller than the other.
-Mask off the sun my mask is a 1 1/16 circle punched from a sticky note, also masked off the ground portion of the panel with the smaller section of torn sticky note.
-Using a brayer inked in yellow brayer onto the lower portion of the panel and start off the cardstock rolling back and forth and side to side to avoid lines. Now add the orange in the same manner but from the top of the panel ink up a second time and repeat. The last color is real red starting from the top again and avoid going over the entire panel until most of the ink is used up, then brayer over the entire sky portion. Remove the sun mask and brayer over the panel without loading the brayer with ink; this tones the white down just a little.
-Now cover the sky portion of the panel with the other piece of torn sticky note. Also place the first piece of sticky note used at an angle on the ground to add depth. Brayer on the green, then remove the angled sticky note and brayer on more green but keeping it bit lighter than the first application.
-Now its time to add the images using a stamp positioner.
-I used a black marker to fill in the leaves of the weeds.
-The corner pieces are the negative pieces of a Cuttlebug lattice border die cut which I glued in place.
-The orange panel and card base were stamped with Stampin Up Linen and ink distressed.
-The envelope was also done with the same technique as the cards image and I also stamped the entire front with Linen. I put a piece of clear acetate inside before any stamping or doing any brayer work to avoid marks where the envelope is double layers.
I was asked where I found the tree image, I purchased mine at a convention but you can find it here at the Magenta site.
