SC227 Sassy on the Farm

I’ve been really busy lately but I refuse to allow anything to get in the way of my Wednesday morning sketch challenge!

First, I cut the vertical rectangle out first with my new Nesties (Cut then Ink Technique). I masked off the ground line and inked up some Mother Mark's clouds. Then I masked off the sky and sponged the grass with Kiwi Kiss at the back and Old Olive in the front (making the grass lighter at the back creates the feeling of distance). After inking the background, I cut the two horizontal strips out. NOTE: I didn't make one cut and separate, I actually cut a 1/8" strip out so everything lines up. I used my Cricut George cartridge to cut the small oval and its mat. My images were colored my usual way, cut out, and adhered into place. Off to work!
