Muse 174 and Simon Says Create a Scene

Tracey has provided a sweet little critter card for this week's Muse, and Simon's Wednesday Challenge  is Create a Scene. I love a one card two challenge post! I was inspired by Tracey's popped up die cuts and the inked grounding of her critters.

I am currently crushing on sweet little 4.25 inch square cards. I find them perfect for some of those smaller stamps that can get lost on an A2 card, and the bonus is they fit in a standard A2 envelope for mailing no extra postage as long as the weight is 1 oz or less.



I stamped the images with Simon's Intense Black ink, colored them with copics (Reds-20,24,29,59 and Yellow Greens 03, and 13).  I die cut the Lawn Fawn images after coloring them along with an Avery Elle double pierced square. My papers are from Stampin Up, and the inking was done with a clarity brush and some Lime Green SSS ink. As a last little touch since I couldn't figure where the heck to put some sequins was to cover the watermelon with glossy accents.

Below are the challenge graphics - one click will take you to the challenge, as will the links above.

  4. Cat love your card/post! First your scene is adorable and your watermelon is shaded perfectly. I think that photographing your card sitting on top of the Copics is brilliant--I will be borrowing that great idea from you! Thank you so much for sharing with us at Muse this week!
