~~~ Backgrounds at Sweet Stampin ~~~

Good morning friends,
I hope you are well and keeping safe.
I finally was able to get my hair cut yesterday...
lots of restrictions but I so appreciate them opening and abiding by the rules.
Was not really lovin my Covid hairdo so this was a real treat to get it cut.

Today starts a new challenge at

Sweet Stampin Challenge

where the theme is "Make your Own Background"

I had so much fun stepping out of my comfort zone for this one.
The MFT stamps are from the "You bring a Smile" set. 



I created the sky using TH Distress Oxide Peacock Feathers ink and a small cloud stencil.
First attempt at this and it took a little tweeking before I was happy.  
For the grass I first brushed on TH Distress Oxide ink Cracked Pistachio then flicked Copic markers
and Polychromo pencil on to create the blades of grass.
All the images coloured with Copics with exception of the bird which was coloured with pencil.
Sentiment is also from the set. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Hi friends,
Hope this finds you well.

This is an older Tiddly Inks digital image that I've had for awhile
When she surfaced in my "to do" file I couldn't resist giving her some colour.
You see, she reminded me of myself...yes I, like so many of us, am in desperate need of a haircut!
When I saw her fringe covering her eyes I had to chuckle and thought she was in keeping with the times.    Hair stylists have not opened yet.....hopefully soon.
