Stampscapes Scene

Hello there!

I ended up having a good sojourn last week and hope to be back on deck this coming week.

Here is a card I half made on the weekend. I have trouble with this type of scene adding finishing touches...mainly coz whatever I put with the scene detracts from the scene and that is not my purpose. I guess the scenes stand well enough alone. What do you think? Would YOU change it in any way?

I have used Marvy Brush Markers and India Ink for colour on white gloss card. The repeat stamping without reinking gives you dimension and distance within the image. I have used just the one stamp from Stampscapes...a line of pines. All card aside from the gloss is Bazzill, and I finally settled just on some paper piercing to create a frame for the image.

It always takes some time to get the colouring right with this type of stamping but the end result is pretty cool. This particular card was cased from one which was pictured with a stamp plate I bought from Stampscapes....It really doesn't look too much like the original even though I was trying to duplicate it at the time! My friend Cheryll and I were just practising our colouring skills...We NEED more practice....One shouldn't leave it so long in between scenes! But, I have to say, it does look pretty nifty IRL....Even the hubby has been studying it...and THAT says a lot!!!!

Beautiful! I think if you feel it needs something, try raising one or more layers with foam tape. That often adds interest to a card without the need for embellishments.

This is gorgeous! At first I thought a darker green cardstock, but nope, I think this is just perfect the way it is. I would agree with Paige and maybe pop it up on dimensionals. Fabulous and the paper piercing adds the perfect finishing touch!
