August My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #4 + Giveaway

Don't forget to leave a comment on this post for a chance to win a kit before you can buy one! Now let's join Michelle who is sharing another beautiful look at the kit...
Hello there, this kit has such a serene and relaxing feel to it and it is perfect for those of us staying at home during this difficult time. I fell in love with the woman on the deck chair image and thought she would be perfect to create a little scene with her reading her book in the garden.
I started off by taking a panel of Dove White Cardstock and masking off the edges. I then blended Green Apple Reactive Ink at the bottom for the grass, followed by Splash Reactive Ink above for the sky. I tried to blend out to white at the top to give a softer look. I took the sentiment from the main kit stamp set and stamped it using Intens-ified Black Ink in the sky.
I adhered the panel flat to a top folding card base. I then took the woman on her deck chair image, as well as the potted plant image from the main kit stamp set and stamped these on to white cardstock with Intens-ified Black Ink. I coloured them with Copic Markers and cut them out using the coordinating Frame Cuts that come in the kit.
I wanted the plants to look like plants growing directly in the garden, so I cut the pot part off to just show the leaves and adhered them to the bottom of the ink blending with foam tape. I then popped the woman behind them using Precision Glue.
