The Coming Storm

Hello! Today I am sharing my second scene for this month's Craft a Scene challenge, Fowl Weather (bad weather and birds in flight). Pretty ominous weather in this scene:

The scene is stamped on glossy cardstock (5.5 x 8.5 in), using Archival Jet Black. I hadn't yet inked up these Stampscapes clouds and thought they worked well as storm weather clouds looming on the horizon. I wouldn't want to be in that boat, but I think they will be okay. That same boat has been on troubled sees before on me scenic cards: here and here. The scene was coloured the usual way with dye inks, using a Colorbox Stylus Tool. I used blue, grey and black inks, starting with the lightest shade and gradually building up darker colours.

Highlights were added with a white gel pen. I also wanted some mist on the water and in the foreground and shine among the clouds, and dry-brushed white pigment ink on the scene to get that effect.

Thank you for looking! Still plenty of time to join us this week.

Happy Stamping!!
