Misty Cabin

Hello stampers! We are continuing our February Favorite Technique theme at Craft a Scene.
Two weeks ago, I shared a tutorial for a black and white scene. This week I continue the same theme with another favourite colouring technique of mine, black and white plus one colour. If you look at the tutorial, the technique is basically the same, except that I started with Adirondack Aqua, which is a great light ink. Then I continued with the grey and black inks, again making sure to leave some areas lighter. Finally, I added some more Aqua, and a little bit of Peacock Feathers Distress Ink, to increase the teal colour in places.

The Water Pattern was stamped with Aqua and Weather Vane, and the birds were also stamped with Weather Vane. Again, highlights were added with a white gel pen and quite a bit of mist by dry brushing white pigment ink on the scene.

Here are more examples of this colouring technique: Winter Covered Bridge, The Coming Storm, Down at the Farm, Winter Walk to the Cottage, A Fairy Tale, and Blue Archipelago.

Thank you for stopping by! There is still plenty of time to join us.

Happy stamping!
