Market Stand Week - Day 1

April 8, 2019

Hello!  This is Nicky back with you today and I'm sharing a card made using Market Stand which comes with coordinating Elle-ments.  I also used the new Ray Die for my background panel.  Tucked into the scene is the cow from Peek-A-Boo Pets.  I also converted the word LEMONADE into LEMOONADE because I can never resist a good pun!

To make this card I ink blended a panel of cardstock using Distress Oxides in Squeezed Lemonade and Cracked Pistachio.  I then squished a little of the Cracked Pistachio onto my craft mat, spritzed some water next to it and using an old toothbrush I mixed the solution picking it up on the brush and then splattered it onto the panel softly blending some of the green into the yellow.  I then die cut the panel using the Ray die and I put the pieces back together on the reverse with tape and secured it to my card base.

I stamped my images from Market Stand and Peek-A-Boo Pets onto Bristol Smooth cardstock and it was at this point that I masked the word LEMONADE to convert it to the punny LEMOONADE.  Images were die cut using the Elle-ments that coordinate and then I watercolour painted everything using Kuretake Zigs in the following colours - Yellow 050, Haze Blue 302, Green Shadow 049, Pale Yellow 055, Beige 072, Light Pink 026, Warm Gray(2) 900 and Mid Gray 096.  You can decorate the front of your farm stand however you like but I chose to draw in a whitewashed boards look!  All images were adhered to the scene using dimensional foam tape.

My final touch was to add a few sparkling clear sequins as a final embellishment.  This summery card could be used for all number of occasions especially with a sentiment stamped inside.

Thank you for stopping by the blog today to read about my card, see you next time!
