I recently purchased a lovely scene set from Gina K. Designs called Framescape Simply Spring which is illustrated by Theresa Momber. And, the Mix It Up Monday Challenge at Stamp TV was to make a single layer sponged scene. So using this stamp set that is what I did.
The first thing I did was take a piece of paper from which I had previously die cut a circle. I used this as a mask so that I could sponge on my grass and sky. This provided the basis for my scene and I proceeded to stamp all of the silhouette stamps from the set using my MISTI and black ink and gradually built my scene. Now I think this is a typical Spring scene around here and especially so in March and April when the first flowers peek their heads out and the trees are finally leafy. And, I remember as a kid and also as a Mom with our kids flying kites during those months.
It sure is a windy one today, but at my age I am no longer in a good enough shape to fly a kite. In fact, I don't have one around here anymore. But this scene did bring back some cool memories for me.
I am also entering this in the Double D's Challenge as the theme is Think Spring.
I hope your weekend is going great. Thanks for stopping in.
