The first image stamped is the swing. I did that on purpose so when I stamped the tree, the leaves would look like they were over the ropes on the swing. The tree is stamped with the Sheltering Tree set in Cucumber Crush. The sun is sponged with Daffodil Delight, and the sky is sponged with Soft Sky. The grass is is sponged lightly with Cucumber Crush and then the grass image from the Sitting Here set was stamped over it. The bird is stamped in Marina Mist and then colored in with Soft Sky marker. The bench is colored in with Tip Top Taupe Marker, and the cushion is colored in with Watermelon Wonder marker. The pillows are stamped with Mint Macaron and then softly sponged with Mint Macaron and punched out with the 3/4" circle punch. I added tiny pearls for the look of buttons.
