To my friend

Summer vacation starts. I remembered I met my old friend last year in Summer time when I was back to China. I missed her. We were friends since we were in preschool. Now we're living different countries. So I made this card today. Hope flowers will bring my message to her.

I used stamp set "to my friend " and background dies by our daily bread designs.  I cut the background die be a frame first. Then I used mask tape to cover all circle scalloped edge. I sponged the yellow and blue color on the center of card. After this, I stamped flower on the card. I splashed some wisteria wonder color on the card.

Took off the mask tape. I stamped sentiment on the other cardstock. And cut it by hand. Glued it on the card.

Finally I used foam tape to mount card to cardbase. Cardbase I chose Neenah classic environment desert storm color.

Second I sponged three blue colors ( island indigo, pacific point and night of Navy).  Then I used the pencil to draw a wave shape on each color. I tore the paper along the pencil line.

Distance view

I always like scenery pictures. So this weekend I decided to make this. I made it on a thick texture paper. And used foam to mount on the canvas panels. I feel mounted on a canvas panels is better than a cardbase.

It is quite simple than I thought. I tore the post-it by hand to make mountain shape. Than I started sponging distress ink to make mountains. I changed the posy-it position to make mountains look  different. I wanted the farthest mountain has the white cloud floating on the waist of it.

Then I stamped migrating birds on the sky. I added the grass and sentiment the bottom. Sponged the blue color on the edges.

Supplies that I used:
Distress ink blueprint sketch, moved lawn
Paper accent texture white cardstock
Master's touch canvas panels
Stampscape migrating birds
Stampscape reeds
Unity stamp Angie's tree
