Good evening. I created this scene using several scene building stamp sets from Chocolate Baroque.
- Sunburst Scenes, Country Views, English Cottages, Townhouses stamp sets
- 17 X 19cm Card Blank, white card, scrap copy paper
- Versafine (Vintage Sepia)
- Water based inks and pens (orange, yellow, gold, blue, green)
- Alcohol marker (dark brown) and fine tipped pens (opaque white and brown)
- Sparkle pen (clear)
- Zig 2 way glue
How it was done:
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.
