I'm making a scene!

Hi blogworld,

Well no not really (again it's a bit like the spotlight post!) I'm not screaming and shouting here but it is a new challenge over at The Cutie Pies and this is where the 'scene' bit comes in!

So we would like you to create a background that goes with an image in the foreground.....i.e. a cloud background, or grass and flowers or how about a snowy scene etc.  As long as your image has some form of a scene around it you’ll be fine.

 Our challenge is sponsored by the wonderful

So this is my attempt at a scene - and it's not even a card!!  It's a little canvas that I've had for ages - it's just I thought my poor flowers have been neglected for sooo long and I wanted to use them, but they cost a fortune to post!

Originally I did mask these two images together - but it seemed rather flat to me- so then stamped the pixie again, coloured her in and popped her up on 3d foam pads for some depth.

Front shot:

The Arty Farty:

I used:

C.C. Designs - Pixie Lucy and Woodland Daisy
coloured with me ProMarkers (copics for the pink)

La La Lands for the banner

DoCrafts - Tulip paper pack

Anything else?
Chalks for the grass and clouds
Wild Orchid Crafts - flowers
Create and Craft - gem swirls

Please pop on over to the blog as my little project is no where near as good as my Teamies have created, they've done good!!

See you soon,


P.S. SWMbO moved into the new bedroom on Friday evening - it still needs finishing touches, but once the radiator was connected there was no stopping her!!  I'll do pics soon.

A challenge, or two:

Glad to hear SWMBO is enjoying her new bedroom - I've just finished decorating our bedroom, so it's onto the hall, stairs and landing next! Hope to have the work signed off at the end of this week after the new fire suite is put in, then it'll be decorating in haste before Xmas! Hugs, Lisa x
P.S. Loved your last spotlight technique card too! X
