Look To The Sky Card

Today I have been playing with more Lavinia Stamps creating this card.

I wasn't in the mood to get very messy, so opted for a sheet of Shenandoah, Natural Wonders patterned paper.  After studying it, I decided on the area that I would work on, as I could see sky, hills, water and rocks in the image.  I then cut it down to size.

I started by using the Lavinia Stamps "Tree Scene (LAV219)" along the shoreline in the distance, stamped in Versafine "Smokey Grey" ink.  I then stamped the Lavinia Stamps "Small Reindeer (LAV487)", the Lavinia Stamps "Birds (LAV097)",  the Lavinia Stamps "Small Fairy Fir Tree (LAV492) and finally the Lavinia Stamps "Spanish Moss Foliage (LAV505)" all stamped in Versafine "Onyx Black".

I then used a brush with water colour pencils to highlight colours in specific areas.  Finally, I used a pencil to create the look of shadows on the water beneath the tree line in the distance.

I have entered this card into #82 "Moving Along With The Times" Challenge.

I have also entered this into the Crafty Cats #433 Weekly Challenge.

    1. Thanks Carol. It is patterned paper, but I have added to areas to make it look how I wanted it to. This paper is handy to have if you want' to craft but don't want to get too inky.

  2. Beautiful scene hard to believe that the bp formed the base, looks as though you inked it, love the position of your stmaps.
