Fairy Tale Castle

Hello stampers! A new month and of course a new Craft a Scene challenge theme - Fairy Tales. I am looking forward to seeing what you will create.
Many fairy tales need a castle, and I made mine pink. The scene is done on glossy cardstock and coloured the with dye inks, using a Colorbox Stylus tool. Most of the stamping was done with black ink and I tried out quite a few compositions before deciding on this one. The castle is from Sutter and the rest of the stamps from Stampscapes. Highlights were added with a white gel pen and mist with white pigment ink.
If you read the Craft Stamper magazine, don't miss my series on scenic stamping, with tutorial articles. The first article is in the July issue and the second one is in the August issue, which is out now. And there is more to come! If you don't read the Craft Stamper, it is a wonderful stamping magazine, full of techniques.
Thank you for stopping by!
Happy stamping!
