Nature, Nature.

I have another masking project for the Less is More challenge this week.

First I stamped this lovely turtle and masked him. Then I stamped the grass and sponged the ground and background.  I used markers to color the turtle.  The dragonfly is hand drawn.  I practiced a lot on scrap paper before I dared to draw it freehand.

All supplies are Stampin' Up!

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Nature's Nest, Inspired by Nature
Ink:  Timber Brown StazOn, Soft Suede, Not Quite Navy, Night of Navy, Old Olive, SU Markers (River Rock, More Mustard, Soft Suede, Basic Black, Sahara Sand)
Paper:  River Rock, Naturals Ivory, Night of Navy
Other:  Stampin' Sponges

Jack is getting really good in the walker.  He's loves to empty the recycling bin and carried an empty apple juice jug around for a long time today.  I put him in the jumper to keep him in one place and he tried to walk in that!  He couldn't get very far so that didn't last long.  It's fun watching him explore.

Thanks for stopping by to visit.  Let me know you came and I'll return the favor.

What a great little scene Bonnie and I'm impressed that you drew directly onto the card, that's always the time when things go pear-shaped for me... super job!
Thanks again.

Love this pretty card with the turtle and grasses. I would have ruined the card for sure if I had tried to draw that dragonfly...good job, Bonnie.

I know you are enjoying that grandson. I bet he is just a real cutie.
