Picnic Pals - Using Clouds for Bushes!

Picnic Pals - Using Clouds for Bushes!

Hello crafty friends! Kimberly here and I just love this month's subscription box from Brutus Monroe! The stamps and dies in the kit are so sweet. I made this card using the Picnic Pal Subscription Box and a couple of items I had in my stash from Brutus Monroe.

I love to try to find more ways to use my stamps other than the obvious. Lat week I used a flower stamp from this set to make a few butterflies. So for this card, I used the "cloud" stamp from Picnic Pals to make bushes. I started out by spraying Brutus Monroe Leaf Green Chroma Mist on my media mat and smooshed my watercolor paper all over it. When I was happy with the coverage, I dried it with my heat gun. Next, I used my Brutus Monroe Raven ink and Misti to stamp the cloud images all over it. 

I die cut the clouds {bushes} using the matching dies in the kit and cut a 1" x 5 1/4" piece of what was left to use for the grass. Then, on a piece of white cardstock, I blended Broken China distress oxide through the Brutus Monroe Tangled Waves Stencil that I had in my stash.  I used the stenciled panel for the sky and adhered that to a blue card base that I cut from cardstock in the kit. I also attached the piece I cut for the grass to the card base and set it aside.

Next, I stamped the boy, girl, sun, and bunny from the picnic pals stamp set. I colored them in using my Copic markers and die cut them. Before I adhered the images to my card base, I put the card base in my Misti and stamped the sentiment on it using Raven ink
Then, I began assembling the card with my images. I added the sun and bushes with foam tape to pop them up and give them dimension. Finally, I added the boy and girl to the card. This Picnic Pal subscription kit is really adorable! 
Thank you so much for stopping by!
