I've gone with a simple layout that I use often, with a textured panel to add interest and a scene cut out with my 2 1/2" circle punch layered on top.
The clouds are stamped in versamark using a splatter image from Stampin' Up's brilliant Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. I heat embossed them using clear embossing powder before stamping the trees from Lovely as a Tree over the top with stazon ink. The trees were stamped again on a post it note and I cut the foreground away from the sky to create two masks. One was held over the foreground while I smeared my Coastal Cabana ink pad over the sky area and the other over the sky while I dragged the Pacific Point pad over the foreground area. I was trying to recreate a screen print style so I chose slightly crazy colours!
The sentiment is from the Express Yourself set which is full of phrases and words in this beautiful flowing style. This is one of the exclusive hostess sets, which are usually available with orders over £150 but members of my Stampers 6 club also have the opportunity to get hold of them for free.
