Happy Thoughts of You

It isn't often that I get to participate in challenges other than for my design teams but this period of staying home to stay healthy does give me some more time to be creative. Just trying to look on the bright side of things.

I stamped the Purple Onion Designs Chloe (bunny) and Charlotte (mouse) onto Copics X-Press It cardstock, colored with Copic markers then fussy cut out. For the background I first used a stitched circle to create a cutout from linen cardstock. For the cutout portion, I used The Cat's Pajamas Great Outdoors stencil with tumbled glass ink to create the clouds. I used another die to cut the grassy area from patterned paper. The images were attached with foam dots as was the sentiment from the Sweet Summer Sentiment set. The butterfly from the Scattered Flowers & Hush (butterfly) was stamped directly onto the cutout piece and also colored with Copic markers. All the images were illustrated by Stacey Yacula for Purple Onion Designs. I generally followed the sketch for the My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge #484 for the layout.
