Hello Again

Hello.  I've been away for a while, but I’m back.  I decided to try and get my crafty space in some sort of order and it took me a little longer than what I anticipated.  I am submitting this card for the Simon Says Stamp background challenge as well as retrosketches

I stamped Owen from Whipper Snapper and placed him in the center of my card stock panel using Memento Black and colored him with the Copics listed below.  I cut both him and the patterned paper using the Stitched and Pierced rectangles from CC designs.  I used my airbrush to create the skyline using B01 and airbrushed the ground using one of the G markers, sorry I forgot to write down that marker color.  The flowers are done using stamps from Lawn Fawn’s Hello Baby set stamped in Beanstalk and Wild Mango with a small touch of bling in the center.  I created the speech bubble by cutting a small portion of scrap paper using the same size die as the image panel and then placed the Lawn Fawn speech bubble die along the bottom to finish off that element.  The sentiment in the stamp bubble is from a Simon Says Stamp set from the April 2015 card kit using WPlus9 Sweet Gelato.  I placed the whole panel on a card base created using Gina K dark chocolate cardstock.

Supplies used:
Paper: Gina K Dark Chocolate, Hammermill #100 for picture panel, We R Memory Keeper For the Record;
Stamps and Dies: Whipper Snapper Owen, Simon Says Stamp Flowers on my mind, Lawn Fawn Hello Baby, By Diezyne Stitched and Pierced Rectangles, Lawn Fawn Speech Bubble Border;
