Wishing You a Harvest of Blessings - MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #409

Hello!  I love working with the Wednesday Sketch Challenges from My Favorite Things.  I find that some sketches are more difficult than others to come up with a plan that works but I love the challenge in trying to find something that fits the layout.

For this week's sketch, I used one of the sweet little mice from the BB Harvest Mouse Stamp Set.  I placed him in a fall background where he can be seen quickly running up the hill with his bushel of berries to store for the winter.

Here's a look at the layout for this week's challenge (WCS #409).

To start, I first stamped my images onto smooth white card stock, colored with Copic Sketch Markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

For the background, I blended some Distress Inks for both the sky (Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Inks) and the grass (Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed and Wild Honey).  For the grass, I spritzed it lightly with water and then let it dry.  Once dry, I splattered both some gold and white paint for some added texture.

I added some birch trees which I had diecut from smooth white card stock and colored by blending each tree with some brown Distress Inks (Tea Dye, Gathered Twigs, and Ground Espresso).

Lastly, I heat embossed my sentiment with Fine Detail Black Embossing Powder and adhered my images with some 3D Foam Adhesive Squares for some added dimension.
