I am a Craft a Scene design team member!!

Today I am very excited to tell you that I made the Craft a Scene design team!!! I am very happy to be part of this and I would like to introduce you to the design team, drumroll please...

Nancy, owner and DT coordinator
Sheree, owner
If you click on the names, it will bring you to their blog, check it out, lots of inspiration and talent! Have fun visiting them, I am excited about all the things we will be able to learn from each other.
So to celebrate I have another Stampscapes card to share with you.
I stamped the Cabin with fence, 144F, with some extra trees, tree duo large 086B, with versafine black ink on glossy paper. After it was dry, I took some stipple brushes and layered the colours on,stipple by stipple, making sure one colour was dry before adding the next one. Those brushes are so easy to use and will give you a great effect. After I was happy with the colours, I added the crooked limb, 097E, and the birds, 112A on the top and added the top part of 191A on the bottom. I have used a variety of inks, SU, Tim Holtz distress ink, Adirondeck inks, next time I will mark down which colours exactly.
I then finished my card with a flourish from MFT and some little leaves from a Punch a bunch punch, sentiment from Close to my Heart, on a die from MFT, and to finish it off I used a bronze Viva pearl pen to add some accents.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day, Anja

Congratulations Anja! You have a great talent, and now a wonderful way to share it!
It's neat to see how others use their Stampscapes stamps - especially when they do more with it than just stamping! Your card looks more like a photograph than a stamped image - nicely done!

Gefeliciteerd! Scraft a scene: betekent dat meer "Laura Ingalls" tafereeltjes? Prima, ik hou me aanbevolen. Heb even doorgeklikt, maar die collega's kunnen er ook wat van, zeg. Jullie zullen ongetwijfeld van elkaar leren en elkaar inspireren. Ben benieuwd! Groetjes, Ingrid
