Digger Flies a Kite

Frances challenged the CCEE Stampers to incorporate a kite into our designs.  I don't have any kite stamps so I had to make mine.  I drew the outline of a kite on the back of my designer paper, cut it out, and then used a Classic Diamond Nestability for the patterned paper in the center of the kite.



Incorporating a kite into my design definitely called for some scene work, in my opinion.   I pulled out my Rubbernecker sets:  Kittie Kits Cause a Scene set for the tree and grass and this adorable doggie, whom I've named Digger, from the Animals set.  Digger and the tree trunk were colored with Copic markers.   I fussy cut Digger and popped him up on dimensionals.  The kite string is embroidery thread that I looped around Digger's tail so he can fly his kite.   Inks I used for the tree leaves and grass were a combination of  Stampin' Up's Certainly Celery, Old Olive and Always Artichoke and Adirondack Lettuce.

I made my sun using the largest Stampin' Up star punch and the 3/4" circle punch out of this cute Good Neighbor designer paper.  I used the Martha Stewart leaf punch for the bows on my kite string.  I punched a post-it note with the large scallop punch to sponge around thereby creating the clouds in my sky.  I lightly sponged Barely Banana just above the ground line and Certainly Celery on the ground.

Digger sure has a goofy look on his face (like a deer in headlights, if you ask me), but he is having fun romping around in the lush grass flying his kite!

Be sure to stop by the CCEE Stampers blog and check out the designs of my teammates.  Why not play along with us, too?

And, if you didn't get a chance to read my blog post from yesterday, you might want to scroll down to see the great blog candy Dolce Stamps and Cards is offering.

Have a great day!
