Hi everyone! Today I have a scenic stamping project to share. I made it for the Craft a Scene May challenge (flowers). It’s a tag booklet and I am not sure what I am going to do with it yet, perhaps add some photos to the inside pags, or ideas about scenes, or perhaps give it away as a gift to someone. Here it is:
Blooms and Bridge stamp with lots of flowers that I hadn’t inked up yet. The stamping was done adding colour directly to the rubber with Distress Markers using brown shades for the pathway and three different shades of green for the grass. The house and trees were stamped using the same brown and green shades. The grass texture in the middle was also stamped with the markers. The scene was coloured with dye inks using a Colorbox Stylus tool and pen nibs, starting with the lightest shades and gradually building up colour. I wanted the flowers to have different colours so made them yellow, pink and purple. Additional flowers were added with gel pens in yellow, pink and purple and I added a white centre to all the flowers with a white gel pen. The same pen was used for highlights. Finally, I added just a little bit of dry-brushed white pigment ink to the sky and the middle area of the grass.
Two more photos:
Thank you so much for looking!
