I got out another oldie but goodie stamp for this card - Lazy Days by Penny Black (I found one available on eBay), heat embossed and colored using distress inks. Using a hand cut mask and distress inks with a blending tool, I made some hills and used more stamps from Penny Black (Sprigs, Snow Blanket) to add some trees and other plants for an outdoor scene. I hadn't planned on using pattern papers but messed up when I tried stamping a border around the card so decided it was best to trim off the edges and use what I could. This old pattern paper from my stash was a perfect match, I think it was a freebie package from Bo Bunny out of a stamping magazine.
Butterflies were done using an old Martha Stewart punch, and the sentiment is from Penny Black's set Sweet Wishes. I tried to add some stencilled sun rays (this was done before I messed up), and now it really doesn't look much like sun rays after I added the sentiment strip.
That's all for today, thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you're having a good weekend! I will be back again tomorrow with my card for the July Penny Black and More challenge theme.
