Hello stampers! Today I am sharing my second scene for the Craft a Scene August challenge - In the Park. You can find my first scene here.
Central Park was stamped on glossy cardstock with Archival Jet Black ink and coloured with dye inks, using a Colorbox Stylus tool. As usual, I started with the lightest shades and gradually built up darker colours. I stamped the person and dog on a stamp positioner plastic sheet, to determine where in the scene to place him, so that the perspectives would be right. Highlights were added with a white gel pen and just a little bit of mist by dry-brushing white pigment ink among the branches of the trees.
The background is embossed and sanded Core'dinations cardstock. The metallic border was a leftover from yesterday's layout, it was die cut from glossy cardstock which had been covered with foil tape. Alcohol ink was applied on top to give it a tarnished look (Pitch Black, Ginger, Espresso).
Thank you for looking! There is still plenty of time to join us in the challenge this month.
