Hi crafter's

I have been playing with my Stampscape stamps again this time focusing on the Small Pines and Rocks. I have used the Clarity silk card the same as in my previous post but in landscape. To start ink up the pines and rocks with Archival Watering Can. I prefer grey ink to black it gives a softer look. Stamp three times as shown. To fill the gap ink up as before then dab off the rocks with kitchen towel, then stamp on to copier before going to the silk card. Repeat this again stamping behind the trees to give more depth. Ink up the Lilly Grass and stamp a few times to give interest to the water. I have used Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky inks to create the water and sky. To do this put some Tumbled Glass on to a blending mat, pick up the colour with Cut'n'Dry foam and sweep from the edge to the middle leaving it lighter in the centre. Sweep the ink from the rocks in to the middle as well. Continue colouring this way up the sides and along the top to create the beginnings of the sky. Take some Stormy Sky ink and start to make the shadows by adding ink at the bottom of the rocks and near the Lilly Grass. Add a water edge at the bottom of the trees in the gap. Going back to the sky add more of the light blue sweeping down from the top at an angle, then add a little more darker blue. Not a lot of ink is needed to achieve this sky. Blend a little Willow ink  above the rocks and at the bottom of the trees, this makes it look like there is some grass. Use Willow in the sky and in the water. Colour in the rocks with Weathered wood using Cut'n'Dry nibs. Add highlights with a white gel pen in the water, rocks and a few lines down the trees. Mat and layer on to light blue and black card then mount on to a white base card. That's it for now, thanks for looking.
