Peter at the Fence Card

Wow Art Impressions Stamps has so much variety. I just got a new little boy Front-N-Backs stamp set UMQ1524). You can work with Peter just the same way as I did with his sister Becky (UMT1519) in the Magic Garden Card, oh and by the way that card is published in Just cards 3D, which is on page 107! Now, I have a fence (UMP 1499) that either of the children can look over!
Here are the steps

Use Stazon Ink to print the front and back of Peter on 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper. I colored Peter using Tom Bow Markers and a water brush.
Cut Peter out and glue Peter's head onto his reverse side body.
Using the Stazon Ink again stamp the fence onto the front side of an A2 card slightly above the bottom edge.
Cut directly across the top of the fence and then up to the top along the fold. You will be trimming away a rectangle. Stamp the fence on the reverse side trying to stay neatly at the cut edge.
Use marker and watercolor brush to color the fence on both sides. If white is showing a bit at the top of the fence, fill in with green marker. Using green maker on the small grass stamp from stamp set UM 3521 fill in grass at the bottom of the fence on both sides of the card.

Measuring to see how high or low to stamp a flower pot, I stamped a sample flower pt on scrap paper and cut it out. It was stamped on the inside across from the fence using the stamp set UM3521. The top of the flower pot looks like a bush showing above the fence when the card is closed.

Because Peter is kneeling on a chair and not standing, he just peeks over the fence!
