Create a Scene

One of the monthly challenges in the Hanna Stamps forum was to create a scene on your card. I really do love Hanna Stamps for several reasons, in part because they are cute and fun to color but the other reason is all the little accessory stamps that come with each set. It does make it easier to create scenes and to use the same stamp over and over in different ways without it always looking the same. So to create my scene here I combined stamps from four different stamp sets; I used Anthony, Lazy Days, the Patio Mini set and the sentiment from But I Need It. This card really did take me a long time to make, I think it shall become a framed piece of work in my house! Like in the entry way so that everyone that comes in the house can see it. There was a lot of masking involved which is something I don't do a lot because of the time factor. All in all I am please with the little scene I created and colored here. I have mentioned to Kip that we don't really need a pool to have a pool boy to wait on me hand and foot, but he doesn't agree with me. I decided Hanna could have someone waiting on her, and bringing her trays of girly looking drinks. For some reason, I have a harder time photographing larger cards and this one measures 6x6 so I took the picture sitting at my desk. Those are my lovely embellishment drawers behind the card, I forgot to put up a backdrop! Images are stamped with Memento ink, colored with Copics, flowers are from Michael's, rhinestone brads are from Making Memories and paper is DCWV. What do you think of my scene here?
