I am really happy with the way this scene has come together. I certainly spent a lot of time on it, which I feel is reflected in the finished piece.
I took some photographs along the way to show the work in progress.
I started off creating the background using Distress Oxide Inks in the shades of Tumbled Glass, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Crushed Olive, Bundled Sage, Antique Linen and Pumice Stone.
I then stamped the "Skeleton Trees" in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" shade of ink. Then the "Tree Root" which I painted in Distress Oxides Inks in the shades of "Ground Espresso", Walnut Stain, and Brushed Corduroy". I needed to extend the tree in height and I also added a couple of branches using the "Tree Branch". I stamped the crow (part of the crow set) in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" ink.
Next I added the hare, which is part of the "Whimsical Hare Set". Then "Fraya's House", painted with Distress Oxides and Sakura Gelly and Signo Sparkle pens. I added the "Path", painted in Distress Oxides. I stamped the flying "Birds" stamped in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist".
I then moved on to stamping "Jasmin and Sebastian's" toadstool houses. I coloured these with Distress Oxide Inks and Sakura Gelly Roll and Signo Pens.
I added a couple of fairies from the "Fairy Foragers" set stamped in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" ink. I added a mouse from the "Three Woodland Mice" set and two hedgehogs from the "Wallace Family"
To add some distance, I stamped some of the small skeleton trees from the "Skeleton Tree Scene" set. I created a background landscape using a torn piece of card and Distress Inks. Then stamped some "Pound Stamps" around the edge of the card. Finally, I added some white high-lights to the card usin a white Signo Pen.
Gorgeous card I am sure your friends will love it.ReplyDelete
