Create a Scene - MMM

Make My Monday sees the grey month of January continuing with Nature and today sees Fliss asking us to:-

"Create a Scene"

Now as my regular crafting friends will know I am not an artist and therefore struggle with this - I am more a collagey layering sort of girl.......I am really not sure whether I have done this particular challenge justice so I recommend you bob over to the MMM blog and see what the rest of the DT have created.



My card is A5 in size.  I started with inking the background using Tumbleglass and Shabby Shutters distress inks, I then spritzed the card with water.  The picket fence (Stampotique) was then stamped onto card which had been coloured using Tea Dye and Sepia ink pads.  This was then cut out (which was easier than it looks surprisingly).


My "scene" of a meadow was then stamped using a selection of inks with the Elusive Images (now Chocolate Baroque) plate of foliage stamps.......My picket fence was then affixed - I tried not to stick this flat and did some bending before adhering with silicone glue!  My butterfly stamps are Crafty Individuals and my love birds are Personal Impressions.  The sentiment is from a plate of Papermania stamps.



Hope you can join us this week - there have been some fabulous entries so far for the month and I am looking forward to seeing what you all come up with! 

I would llike to enter the following challenges with my card:-

Create a Scene - Anything as long as it is a scene!

Stamp n Doodle - Country Living

A lovely scene and it made me hope that spring might just be on the way. Love the picket fence and I must say it looks as if it was fiddly to cut out
