Sidewalk Cafe

This little colorful sidewalk cafe scene was fun to make!

I laid 8" x 6" Decorative Stencils by Sheena - Perspectives over a card from Scored Cards Pack of 10 (6" x 6") - Bright White, secured it in place with a low tack tape and spritzed with Fireworks Sprays cottage ivy, pear tart, dandelion, summer sky, danube blue, grape jelly.  I laid another card over the stencil to pick up the extra ink creating the inverse - two for one!

I turned the stencil over onto one of the scenes and spritzed Fireworks Sprays summer sky filling in the white spaces. 

Next, I added a tree with 8" x 6" Decorative Stencils by Sheena - Summer Meadow and Fireworks Sprays cottage ivy. TIP: After spraying, dab with a paper towel to create variation in color. 

I used a Sponge Dauber and Distress Ink Pad chipped sapphire to fill in color on the birds from the 8" x 6" Decorative Stencils by Sheena - Summer Meadow.

After I adhered the cafe set to the front of the card, I made it pop by tracing it with a Spectrum Aqua Marker navy.
