Today I have another scenic card to share which I made for Craft a Scene. This month’s theme is Inside the Garden and you could win a prize from this month's sponsor Heartfelt Creations.
I wanted to make a magical, fairytale garden and decided to do a nighttime scene using a monochrome colour scheme.
The scene is done on glossy cardstock (8.5x5.5 inches). All the stamping was done with Ranger Archival Ink Jet Black. As always, I planned the scene on scrap paper first. I wanted to use lanterns, but didn’t have any, so instead I stamped only the top part of a lamp post stamp, right on top of the wall, in three places. The scene was coloured with dye inks using a Colorbox Stylus tool (see this tutorial for this colouring technique), using shades of blue and turquoise, in this order Aqua, Speckled Egg, Peacock Feathers, Stream, Denim, Pitch Black.
When I was finished with the colouring I wanted to include just a bit of silver, so I restamped the leafy branches in the front with Versamark and silver embossed them. Highlights were added with a white gel pen and mist by dry-brushing white pigment ink on the scene.
Thank you for looking! I hope you will play along with us!
