Spring Birch Forest

Hello stampers! A new month and a new theme at Craft a Scene, Let it be Spring.
I love Birch trees and made a Spring Birch Forest with Stampscapes stamps. The trees were stamped with Watering Can ink and the grass with three different green Archival Inks. I used scrap papers to mask the trees when stamping the grass. The grass was made darker in the front of the scene and lighter towards the back, to increase a sense of perspective. White spring flowers were added to the grass with a gel pen.

Thank you for looking!

Happy Stamping!
