SC233 Gardening

Bright and early this morning I'm up to do the SCS sketch challenge. I think it took me a half hour at the stamp table before I was really awake! Now I'm rushing to get this posted and get to work.

I used my Cut then Ink Technique (with Nesties) to cut the sketch. Then I tore a mask for the dirt area. I used an old mask for the top line where the ground meets the sky. I sponged in some Creamy Caramel for dirt. I then moved the mask around a little and sponged Close to Cocoa and even a little Chocolate Chip to get the rough texture of the dirt. Next I sponged in the Old Olive grassy area. It was a little boring so I added the tufts of grass. Finally I sponged the sky in Soft Sky with a little Baja Breeze in the top corners. Again, I felt this was a little boring, so I added some of my clouds. You can pick up my cloud shape here. Inserted all the frames behind the elements of the sketch, glued everything down, and I'm done and off to work!
