Bob Loves Grass

Hello High Hopes Fans

I am happy to share another one of my cards, using one of the stamps and sentiment from the new release--All About Boys!

This is Bob Loves Grass (T518), and sentiment from Sentiment Set #3 (U506).  This stamp makes me chuckle!!!  I think Bob needs a haybine to cut his lawn, following all the recent rains in Southern Ontario! Poor Bob - LOL!!! 

I coloured Bob with Tombow Markers and water. After the image was all coloured and dry, I began fussy cutting the entire image.  Using some grass designer paper, I punched some grass out using a Martha Stewart edger punch a couple of times, then trimmed it to size for my uncut part of the lawn. (I had to trim down the part of lawn that Bob had already done!)  The sentiment was embossed with black embossing powder on vellum paper and die cut using a cloud die.  A white piece of cardstock was also die cut with the same cloud die to place under the vellum cloud.  I used a silver Sakura pen to outline the white cardstock cloud to resemble the cloud designer paper used.  While I had my dies out, I figured a fence would make for a nice background in Bob's yard too.  The sentiment was placed on the card with foam tape, along with the top part of the coloured image.  The bottom half of the image just received glue.  This seemed to add a neat effect with dimension to this card.  To complete this design, a few YNS Gumdrops were added to the top corners of the card, as well as, some Glossy Accents were added to Bob's sunglasses.
