Simplescapes!



Hi everyone,

I received my Marvy inks in the mail today and have finally settled with enough supplies to try some of the lessons more fully from the Stampscapes site. Mind you, I didn't end up using the ink pads for this one...lol!

I have used Stampscapes stamps throughout, aided and abetted by India Ink and Pine Needles distress ink (I don't own the Ocean Aqua actually used in the sample, so improvisation was called for). I followed closely....well sort of closely the lesson found here http://www.stampscapes.com/lessonset.html (Scroll down the left side till you get to Simplescapes, and then choose Lake Aqua Blue). I did like the moody effect and love the outcome. I think it would look good using other colours also, and am thinking of trying them out.

I finished the scene off with buffing it up with Micro Glaze and adding gel pen highlights here and there. This time, I added the gel pen after the glaze, coz last time the stuff just rubbed straight off!

Hope you like it.
