Walk in the Park scene card

Good evening. I created this scene using several scene building stamp sets from Chocolate Baroque.

How it was done:

AW Walk Park 1

Brown, green and gold inks were picked up from left over inks on my craft mat (spritzed with water). I try to do this with any leftovers so that I collect some inked background papers to use in future projects. I thought that this one would make a nice base for a landscape.

I stamped the sign post, trees and bushes onto scrap copy paper and cut them out to create masks for stamping. I applied a couple of dots of zig glue to the backs and left to dry (it dries clear to give a removable tac). I then keep the masks in my stash as they can be reused many times. Chocolate Baroque also do masking tissue which already has a cling back for this purpose.

I stamped the scene with Versafine working from the foreground, masking images before working images further back.

At this stage it looks a bit of a mess. The fine tipped pen was then used to draw in elements to ‘make sense’ of the scene.

Colouring was added using watercolour pens, dragging out colour with a damp brush to give shading. A sinking sun was drawn on with a brush and water, and colour blotted away. A little clear sparkle pen was added for shimmer. The card was edged with alcohol maker to frame.

Finally highlights were added with a white pen.
