Harvest Of Hope

I took last week's sketch challenge and altered it just a bit. Instead of having just an oval in the center, I changed that to a square with rounded sides and popped up my image with a scalloped oval.

I chose to also use a set that needed to see some ink...Harvest of Hope. Since I was using some background paper from the Spring Mat Stack from Die Cuts With A View, I wanted to keep my coloring soft to match the paper.

I chose to use my prismacolor pencils and blended them with one of my blender markers. The wheelbarrow image is stamped twice on Stampin Up! vanilla cardstock in memento tuxedo black in with one image punched out using the Marvy Giga scallop punch. I sponged Stampin Up! apricot appeal ink lightly around the edges of the punched layer, again to match the matted backghround, and layered it over the colored wheelbarrow that was also popped up on dimensionals. I then added some bling with Stampendous Class-A-Peel's stickers and a ribbon bow by Martha Stewart.

Here's a close up of the dimension:
