Paper Sundaes Challenge #13 - Make a Scene

Happy Sundae!  The challenge for this week's Paper Sundaes 13th Challenge is to make a "scene" card and is sponsored by My Creative Classroom an online arts and crafts learning center!  When I first heard about the challenge I thought "How am I going to do that?"  Then I realized I had a bunch of Magnolia stamps that I could use to create a scene.  I used 4 different stamps sets to create this card and layered all the images:  Stone Wall and End Pillar, Fence and Summer Background (clouds), Tilda with Flower Jeans and Butterflies.  All images except the cloud were coloured with copics (B00, B02, B04, B06, YG13, YG17, E00, E11, E33, E35, E13, E15, E17, E18, E37, E44, E49, E43, R02, R22, R39, RV32, RV34, W2, W4 and W6).  I cut out each image and then glued it on to my blue background paper.  I wasn't thinking when I started as I did the stone wall before the clouds, that was pretty messy to tear off, let me tell you!  I used SU cardstock and SU border punch.  I also decided I wanted to try stitching on my card but don't have a lot of coloured thread for my sewing machine so I hand stitched it with DMC embroidery thread, god knows I have TONS of that!  I used my pink spica glitter pen to add to the butterflies and my clear glitter to add to Tilda's wings but I couldn't get it to show up well in my photo.

This was a fun challenge!  Making a scene card can be interpreted in so many different ways.  Did you check out the amazing creations by the rest of the Paper Sundae Girls?   I checked out My Creative Classroom's class schedule and there is definitely something for everyone from rubber stamping to scrapbooking techniques and even courses on different die cut machines!   I want to take "Beginner Scenic Stamping" with Sandy Hulsart, the samples look amazing!

I will also be entering this into Roses on Papers Challenge #35 which is to create layers.  I hope that by layering my stamped images this will count!  I will be entering it also into Sew Many Challenges because they asked to use stitching on my card.  Hopefully my attempt at hand-stitching counts :)

Paper Sundaes has even more exciting news so be sure to check out the Paper Sundaes Blog to hear about our sponsor celebration & blog hop!  Have a great day :)
