Cabin at Falls

Here's the third of my scenic stamping pieces that have been turned into Stampscapes idea cards. Here's the first post about this. This scene was a birthday gift to my sister. It measures 5.5” x 8.5” and it done on glossy cardstock.

This scene uses quite many stamps and was first planned on scrap paper. The stamping was done with black and green ink. The Tree Duo was stamped repeatedly among the trees behind the cabin to make the forest denser, as well as on top of the tall mountain. Dye inks were applied with a Stylus Tool and Fantastix, starting with the lightest shades of ink. I wanted to keep the scene relatively light, so I was careful when applying the darker colors. The white of the paper was left in parts of the sky, waterfalls and river. A bit of purple was added to the mountains and pink to the water and sky.

The Water Pattern was stamped in the river using blue ink in first and second generation impressions, going lighter where the water is lighter. Highlights and flowers were drawn with white, pink and purple gel pens. Mist and clouds were added with white pigment ink and I tried to use it to make the tall mountain look like it is further away. At first, the birds were stamped twice in the sky, but I smudged the second impression; luckily the Oak Branch concealed the mistake perfectly.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
