Gazing Ball

Stamp Sets:Define Your Life,Tropical Party and Sweet Scoops
Colors: Compliments of Just Add Ink
Tempting turquoise,rich razzleberry,kiwi kiss and white
Accessories: Bird punch,1-1/4"circle,ittybitty punch(flower),scallop-edge punch,white gel pen,shaving cream,polka dot impressions folder,scallop oval punch

I have had this thought(gazing ball) in my head for awhile now...hmmm along with so many others;)).  I love PPA and all their inspiring ideas.  This challenge was SUMMER! Nothing screams summer to me like sun,birds and flowers!
 For the gazing ball, I used the shaving cream technique,with turquoise and razzleberry re-inkers. I also outlined my bird with turquoise pen on the ball(after drying) so that the bird was looking at its reflection.

For the pedestal I used my cone from sweet scoops tuned upside down.  I used my fronds from tropical party to make grass and added some little wildflowers in razzleberry from the itty bitty punch. I used my white gel pen to highlight the flowers as well as parts of my turquoise punched bird.  The birds wing is embossed with the polka dot folder. I used the edge of scallop oval punch as a mask for my clouds. I used my markers to color in my definition and attached that to a scalloped-edge piece of razzleberry cs. All are on a whisper white card.

Until Next Thought~Kris
