This is my second card for CC121 to use Chocolate Chip, Olive and Pretty in Pink and I turned to another of my new My Favorite Things set http://www.mftstamps.com/. I did a card similar to this a couple of weeks ago but kept thinking I needed to add a picket fence and a tree. It is fitting to me that since the lady's head is not in the scene that the trunk of the tree and just a few leaves would show as well.
I stamped the image and used my artist pen to sketch the fence and the tree. I painted with reinkers and a watercolor brush. I used a large dry paint brush to paint on ink by dragging the brush directly to the ink pad and using a stipple motion to appy the color. I used Olive for the grass area and Sahara Sand for the sidewalk. I used a tiny small dry brush to appy the lines in the walk with SS. I used my trusty retired Watercolor Minis fern stamp for the grassy texture and leaves. I brushed on little flower stems along the fence and used a small dauber to apply little pink flowers. I used glitter glue to add sparkle to the flowers and the dog colars. All the dogs are girls and need diamond stud colars!!!!!!! I used a sponge and the cloud template to do a little sky color.
