Happy Friday!
I hope your fine spring week has been going well. If your neighborhood is like mine, the sound of lawn mowers has been heard quite a bit this past week. With the spring temps and rain, it seems every man on the block has been revving up those Toros and Snappers and John Deeres. I'm sure it's fun and exciting now...but I can almost guarantee by mid summer, they'll be dreading it and a broken mower will seem like a good idea.

My card is pretty simple, just one layer. I started by stamping the fence w/ gray ink, masked the top and sponged in a few clouds and the sun. The lawn mower was stamped w/ black and the grass w/ several colors of green. Then I colored everything w/ Copics and added the sentiment and a little shading. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Supplies:
stamps: Broken Mower Greeting, Brush Lawn Mower, Easy Grass Background, Add a Fence
paper: whtie
ink: Memento London Fog, Tuxedo Black, Cottage Ivy, Bamboo Leaves, Northern Pine, Cantaloupe, Summer Sky
accessories: Copic markers, black permapaque marker, white gel pen, bird punch
