Little Dreamers

Happy Monday! I'm off today (whoo hoo!) so I'm getting some much needed laundry done and while taking care of that I plan to do some crafting. YAY!!! It's always nice to have a day off from work especially when the weather is gorgeous outside. Hope you're doing something fun today as well.
For my share today I decided to play along with Jen's Saturday Sketch over at the CA&F blog. As you know with any TGF or CA&F challenge you have to use a TGF stamp. And for any sketch challenge you have to have the elements there even if you choose to flip it. Well I had to flip mine to fit but I think it turned out nicely and I was still able to fit in all the elements. I chose to go with the newest OA set called Little Dreamer.

This is such a cute set even though you can't see their faces. I decided to use both Oliver and Amelia in my card. I masked Oliver and stamped Amelia to create that side by side look. I wanted to go for a tranquil setting so I colored in some grass and then colored the sky a very light blue trying to make clouds. I need practice as you can tell.. hahaha.. I used paper from MME (Twinkle Twinkle Little Boy), K&Company (Berry Sweet) and some green floral paper from MM. I love giving a small vintage look to the paper so I sponged the edges with some brown ink. To add dimension, because the patterns weren't dimensional enough for me (hahaha), I dry embossed them with some fun Cuttlebug folders. I also used some dark brown paper to give it a little bit of pop. I used diamond glaze on parts of the image including the eyes on Oliver's backpack, the strawberry on Amelia's backpack as well as the strawberries on the top right corner. For the sentiment I added the "s" on the end because there is not only one dreamer but two. :)
Okie dokie, time to wrap this up and get crafting, o yea and finish some laundry too... hahaha! Hope you get a chance to play today. Have a great Monday and a fantastik week!!
