Summer Days

Hiya, how's everyone? The weather here has been so lovely and I love sitting out on my back porch and enjoying the view!So I was inspired to use this gorgeous newly released set from Mark's Finest Papers. "Adirondack Summers". This silhouette image is so versatile, l decided to see how it would look colored. I made the tree, hopefully to look like a Wisteria tree.
I made this for today's sketch challenge at SCS, SC342.

Papers: MFP and DP is DCWV
Stamps: MFP Adirondack Summer (stamped twice)
Ink: Memento and SU (really rust for the chair)
Accessories: MS punch, Memento markers, Primsa pencils, and Copic's (to shade the fence)
Technique: Huffing and sponging.
I really liked how this turned out and was fun trying something new.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Love how you did the shadow on the fence, my friend! Oh, and if it is cool under that tree, count me in for a squat!
