Just Saying Hello Card by Sue

Hi Everyone,
Our DT Gal Sue has created a lovely card to share today.
I hope you enjoy it. I love the way Sue has combined paper piecing & copic colouring in her design.
This card reminds me of warm summery days.

PRODUCTS USED :

Paper: Echo Park- A walk in the Park 'Playground'

Ink: Memento-  Tuxedo Black, Versafine- Onyx black

Accessories: Air brush and compressor,MME Lime Twist - Fly a Kite "Soar" Twine, buttons, mini rhinestones, Xpress it Mask it, MFT Die-namics clouds trio

TUTORIAL :

Stamp an additional dress onto the Playground paper and cut out, cut 3 small triangles from the bottom of the dress, making the appearance of pleats.
Cut out the blue wiggly strip from the 1st dress, attach to the patterned paper dress, stick to the top of the 2nd coloured dress, bending up the pleats slightly.
Take a piece of Xpress it blending cardstock 150 mm x 105mm, stamp the trees and colour.
Cut the mask for the grass from Mask it, airbrush with YG03 & YG06
Using the Die-namics die, cut clouds from the Mask-it.  I have used different sizes to make the background.  Peel off the backing and stick the clouds together to make a long row.
attach the line of clouds near the top, airbrush with B21 marker, carefully peel off and move the clouds down and across slightly, airbrush again, repeat this process until the sky is filled with clouds.
Add some tufts of grass around the base of the trees with YG03, YG06, YG09,G28, dot the tops of some of the blades with YR14
Attach the buttons with some foam dots, wrap the twine around each button to form the clothesline.
Attach the clothes with double sided and foam tape.
Finish off with a few rhinestones and a greeting!
