Another scenery card as I need another masculine birthday card. I am not so sure about the sky but I got good comments from my dh, who always tells me honestly what he thinks, I don't always agree but that is okay, right, LOL!
I stamped the pines and rocks Stampscapes 267 E, three times on glossy cardstock and added the rocks on the bottom,295 C. Then I got my stipple brushes and started with the sky.
Here are the colours I used: Tim Holtz (TH) spun sugar, Stampinup (SU) summer sun, TH dried marigold, SU baja breeze, TH black soot, maybe this is a bit too black?
Then I stamped some water with Stampscapes (SC) 231 C, with SU not quite navy and stippled some SU pacific point, SU not quite navy and SU basic grey on.
Every time I put on a colour, I will dry it with my heat gun for a couple of seconds, this way the colours don't mud together.
The stones have a bit of TH old paper, TH frayed burlap and SU chocolate chip.
I wasn't gonna colour the trees as it is getting dark, but I still thought it needed some, so I added a bit of SU handsome hunter.
At last I stamped the birds, SC 302 A and the reeds, SC 067 B.
I sprayed on some acrylic sealer from Americana, have had this forever.
Sentiment is from Just Rite. I matted the image on black, put it on a piece of kraft, ripped and inked the bottom, some scored lines and put it on a black base.
Sometimes after the scene is done, I don't know how to finish the card, feels like I do the same thing over and over, but then, I think, it doesn't need much any more, any thoughts, please let me know!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day, Anja
