A Summer Picnic Card with Lexa

Hello!  Lexa here with a picnic scene card with all the little details starring Summer Picnic stamp set and coordinating dies. I love everything about this set, so many elements to compliment your cards or projects. Here's my card for today...

Sunny Studio Stamps: A Summer Picnic Watercolor Card by Lexa Levana.

I started by cutting two pieces of white cardstock in 4.25" x 5.5".  For the first piece, I blended some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to create my clear blue sky.  For the second one, I die-cut it with a cloud border die and applied Crushed Olive Distress Ink for the grass using the negative portion of a grassy border die-cut as a mask.

I colored all the images with watercolor and Distress Markers before I arranged them all together to create the scene. The picnic mat is paper pieced in a red plaid patterned paper. If you look closer, you will see that I did some detail for the picnic basket. I cut the line exactly above the cloth so I can tuck in some of the fruits as if they were inside the basket. ;)

Last step is stamp some of the ants and the sentiment to match the scene. It was so much fun to create this card. I hope you all have a great day!
