Hello stampers! A new month, and of course, a new theme at Craft a Scene. This month we are doing scenes with Hills and Mountains.
My inspiration this week was this great sentiment and I built up the scene based on that. I made a tall card (9 x 4 3/4 in), using glossy cardstock. After stamping out the whole scene, I messed up the stamping of the sentiment and instead of restamping everything, I stamped it on white cardstock and cut out it, hiding the bad stamping underneath. But it would have looked nicer had the sentiment been stamped in the water as originally planned.
The edge of the water was extended with the Sedge Bank stamp and I also added some life to the scene. The scene was coloured with dye inks using a Colorbox Stylus tool (see this tutorial), I kept the colours pretty light, making sure to reflect the pink of the sky in the water. The Water Pattern stamp was stamped with both blue and pink, for a tone-on-tone effect. Mist was added by dry-brushing white pigment ink on the scene, particularly at the base of the mountain, adding to the sense of distance.
Thank you for looking! I hope you will join us this week in our challenge.
