Sister Stamps Release #9 - Buddies

Hello there!  It's Sister Stamps release time again and we have a couple new cuties for you this month!  Today, I'm featuring "buddies" - how joyful are these two boys playing leap frog? I had fun creating this card and this scene came to be as I imagined kids playing carefree in the country.

I laid down the background colors using SU inks and sponges.  Then I stamped a grass image with PTI kraft ink and some wild flowers with black archival ink.  I masked a circle to represent the moon coming up as the sun was setting. I felt the scene needed to be grounded so I punched out some grass and laid it at the bottom of the card.  This sentiment perfectly coordinates with the image and balances out the scene.  I really like the way the background turned out and will definitely be using this technique more.

If you love this image and would like to win this stamp, just FOLLOW THIS BLOG and post a comment on THIS post.  Winners will be announced on September 1 so come back and check to see if you're a winner.  The stamps for this release will be available for purchase on September 1 and you can find retail locations on Sister Stamps blog.

We welcome guest designer Cindy this month so make sure to check her out HERE and also stop by the official Sister Stamps blog for more fun!  I have another project to share with you so I hope to see you back here tomorrow!
