can you dig it?

Here is another card that I made with one of my new MFT's stamp sets. It is called Can You Dig It and, as usual, I love the set! Actually, I was attracted to the set the moment I saw it but didn't realize how difficult it would be for me to stamp with it. One of the first things I did after getting this set was to make a mask of the gardener girl. I knew I would want to put grass and sky behind her so a mask was a necessity. You must know that this is my first try at a "scene" type of card. I'm definitely going to try it again as I really like this set and can see myself doing lots of things with it. I just need to not be afraid of it...LOL! All the paper is from PTI and most of the ink too. PTI hasn't come out with a list of COPICS that match their ink colors yet so I just took a small paint brush, smooshed the top of the Palette Ink pad for some color and painted the flowers with the two colors. I added a little Liquid Pearls in the middle and that was that. Oh, and I messed up on the water can and accidentally cut off the handle...oops! So, whatcha think? I did make one other project yesterday but it isn't up to snuff enough yet to post it on the blog but hopefully tomorrow!

This week has just FLOWN by...I can't believe it is Friday already! I hope you all have had a great week and that you gets lots done this weekend!

I love this! Her paper-pieced hat is divine! Aren't "scenes" a litte 'fun' once you get started on them! Keep up the delightful creations!!
