CDS Sneak Peek - Picnic Time!

Yippee! It's sneak peek time for Clear Dollar Stamps and I have this cutie to kick off the summer season with. This set is called Picnic Time and is one of my own, and you can see the entire set over at the Clearly iStamp blog.

For this card I masked the skunk to fit into the picnic basket because clearly, he wanted to join the party too, and added a scrap of October Afternoon DP as a table cloth. The background was made up of strips of sponged card stock that I weaved together to mimic the basket. I water coloured the image with my tombows and popped up a few sections to make it more dimensional. I have to admit...I did have a hard time leaving lot's of "white space" and tearing myself away from all of the yummy designer papers that I had picked out for this card!

Thanks for coming by this neck of the woods today and don't forget to hop around and check out all the other sets that are being previewed :)

Very sweet card, Kim!

We have 4 live skunks stuck in our 4 foot deep window well right now. It's not a nice situation! Your card is making me smile about it all right now though!!!
